I have a a G$ cube with a 20gb drive, but I want a larger hard drive. Can this be done and still save all my files on the current drive?

You need to get a firewire case to put the current drive in. Then you can install the new drive and copy everything over.

Otherwise, I know of no other way (except maybe using your .Mac storage to upload everything if you (a) have a fast connection and (b) have less the 20 MBs of data that you need to keep).

I guess it is also possible to place the 20GB drive in the CD/DVD bay temporarily as a stop gap solution, but a FW case ($59+) would be the sensible way to go and a lot less hassle.
