How do I do this upgrade (please read on)?

I have a Macbook (2.16 - 2nd generation) with a 160 GB HD and I just purchased a 200 GB HD (7200 RPM) with an external case and I plan to install the 200 GB in the MB and use the 160 GB drive as an external drive for back-ups. I am running OS 10.4.11 and have a Boot Camp partition of 30 GB (access this via Parallels and direct boot). I have SuperDuper to do the cloning parts, so:

Here's what I want to end up with:

1) A fully cloned existing HD, including the Boot Camp partition
2) A new 40 GB partition to run a separate install of 10.4.11

How to get from A to B?

I am guessing this is the procedure:
1) Install 10.4 on new HD and create three partitions (two to match the original, and one new one)
2) use SD to clone the main partition and the boot camp partition
3) install 10.4 on new partition

My initial questions: will SuperDuper properly copy the Boot Camp partition? Is my step 1 correct, or will SD automatically create the two original partitions when it copies things over?

After all of this, could I then upgrade the main partition to 10.5.1?

Thank you!
