iBook G4 hard drive failing, clone with SD ?

The HDD in my friends iBook G4 is failing. Sometimes the machine fails to boot, sometimes its fine, guessing mechanics by the grinding sounds when it doesn't work. Anyway, I bought a replacement 120GB drive and I have a document explaining how to fit the replacement (man that's a lot of screws!)

She cannot find the original OS disk (OSX) so I cannot set up any partitions that I see mentioned in other threads.

I have a 2.5" USB disk enclosure so I was hoping I could;

1. Boot from the G4.
2. Run some kind of disk repair.
3. Use SD to completely clone the disk to USB.
4. Replace the internal disk with the one from the USB enclosure and boot up.

On a seperate note I bought her some RAM as she only has 256MB. When I install the 1024MB stick are there any software changes to make ?
