Well, I gave up on copying the disk the regular way (the way that lets
me adjust partition sizes) and just did a block copy with dd.
Surprisingly, it worked (between a 4 gig and 8 gig drive).  The only
problem was that since it was a block copy while the computer was
running off of that drive, it didn't get synched at shutdown...  Oh
well.  Thanks for the help!
