    migration

    Anybody know a good method for moving a linux install from one box to another? I was thinking of making a disk image and just moving it that way, but I'm not confident that enough drivers will work well enough to allow it to boot, especially if I go from a P4 to a 64 bit AMD chip. Any suggestions? There are many weeks of work wrapped up in this server and I would like to dress it up in better hardware.

    Did you recompile the kernel, specific to the original hardware?

    Or are you using a 'generic large' kernel?

    If you are using a large and haven't disable specific drivers/modules you may be able to just swap it. If you customized it to the original hardware, then you either need to start over or recompile/replace the kernel with something 'generic'.
