    Unhappy Migrating RHEL4


    I would like to install RHEL4 on this config:

    OLD PC
    ASUS A8N SLI DELUXE
    AMD 3200 (Socket 939)
    1gb transcend

    and after a few weeks plan to move my HDD to this config:

    NEW PC
    AMD X2 3600+
    MSI K9NGM Motherboard
    Kingston 512 MB DDR2 RAM 667 MHz

    Would i have to re-install RHEL? i am quite new to Linux so should i just wait a couple of weeks and install on my new config?or would moving my hdd frm the first config to the second config be easy and not problematic.

    In theory, you don't need to reinstall your system.

    Of course things to keep in mind is that after the move, you might need to change/update things. For example your kernel (if your new machine uses a dual-core processor you need a SMP kernel) and your graphics card.

    Of course, the most easiest thing to do is wait for the new computer
    Or... use these weeks to test everything and reinstall on the new computer (and keep the content of the important partitions like /home /usr/local, etc.).

    Post any questions you might have.

    Oh, one more thing, RHEL5 is due in March
