If you right click 'documents' you can set it's location to the other drive (under location). That'll make it an easier transition.
Also you can use any vista media iirc, not just the laptop CD unless you want all the extras that are installed with it.
You can even switch between 32bit and 64bit vista using the same key.
As with any OEM reinstallation, you'll probably have to phone M$ to activate the installation.
