How do I clone the MacBook Air hard drive?

I want to upgrade our Macbook Air original A1237 80GB hard drive to 120GB. I have Superduper and a 2 1/2" (I think that's the size) hard drive cover I've used when I upgraded our 2 iBooks to clone the new drives. I haven't got the new 120GB ATA drive for the Air but I'm afraid it won't fit.

Is there an external cover for the 1.8" Air ATA drives that I can purchase, and if so, where do you recommend?

If not, how would I clone the original drive to the new? I've got an USB external hard drive. If I clone to that how do I then clone to the new 120GB drive?

I also asked Shirtpocket what they recommend using Superduper. I'll post whatever they recommend. Thank you.

I know the Air upgrade will be harder than the iBook but I'm confident with the ifixit step by step and your help I can do it.

Thank you.

Simple, although it took a couple of minutes to think of it. Use Time Machine to back up the drive to any external. Install the new drive. Start up from your system installation disk, use Disk Utilities to format the new drive. Now install a system and use Time Machine to move everything in.

If you want to clone the entire hard drive, here is a very good software called Carbon Copy Cloner It has a trial version. I like it much better then Time Machine because your cloned drive is bootable in case of emergency. :)
