If you don't trust a raw copy, why not just throw in your other (newer) disk
on the SCSI bus, disklabel it, format it, partition it, and do a "copy -R" of
the entire filesystem?

Besides, it's not as though you'd actually destroy your old disk if you made a
copy. Just try the dd route, and if it doesn't work, truy something else. You
really haven't got anything to lose.
