Sure you can! Just clone the original drive with a application like "Super Duper", into an external drive or via Target Mode using firewire.

This software makes this task a breeze.

I second the recommendation to use SuperDuper. just to clarify, you MUST use disk cloning software like this to clone your entire drive - you can't simply mount the drive and manually drag-to-copy the folders from your existing drive to the new drive as that won't give you a bootable drive. of course your original drive must have had a bootable OS on it to start with.
