I would use arraycopy() looping through rows, that is, copying row by row.
This code will copy all rows from board (0 - 7) into rows (1 - 8) of newboard. For each row, it copies 8 positions from board starting at 0, to newboard starting at 1. You would have to initialize the new cells accordingly...
Edit: I screwed up a little bit on the array declarations, nevermind, look at Ernest's code I rarely use jagged arrays! Edit II: Just to point out that this code copies the original board centered on the new one, yielding new cells all around. Ernest's version adds rows and columns at the end.

Thanks for your quick responses!
It's good to know that I was on the right track (conceptually speaking).
