Copying Windows system using Linux

My LFS system shares one of my drives with a Windows 98 system, which I 
boot very infrequently.  I'm about to replace the drive with a larger 
one. I've got the HD upgrade mini-HOWTO, and I think I know what to do 
as regards copying my Linux partition over.

My question is: Can I use Linux to copy my Windows partition over as 
well - by mounting the old and new vfat partitions and using "cp -ax"? 
It seems to me that it should work, is there any reason it might not?
