Now THAT is a sweet thing!  Really simple, quick, and basically mindless!  I should be able to do that before dinner and maybe have my data accessible again before MY bedtime, and still have lots of time to play with the kids before THEY go to bed!

This is the quick way.  Insert the new disk and run:
sfdisk -d /dev/sdb | sfdisk --force /dev/sdc

which will copy the partition layout of sdb onto sdc all in one step.
