What is the easiest way to change my 160 GB HD for a 500 GB using Mac OS X

"I have a Mac with Mac OS X 10.5.8 installed. My 160 GB hard drive is almost full and I want to replace it with a 500 GB hard drive.
What is the best way to transfer all data (including the system configuration) to the new drive?"

You can use Disk Utility from your install DVD to make a disk image of your internal hard drive to your network drive. Then after having switched from the 160 GB to the 500 GB hard drive, you restore your disk image to the 500 GB hard drive, also using Disk Image from the install DVD.
