Bingo, fsarchiver did the trick.  It took a while, but a perfect copy was
made and deposited on the IDE drive and windblows was able to finish doing
its update thing.

All of my settings were left intact and, except for the video driver,
everything came back for the hardware I have installed.

I love Linux tools like this.  Even though the ntfs-3g program is still
supposed to be shaky, it worked perfectly.

Thanks for the suggestion.  It saved my ass.
