Rebuild your kernel before you move it across to the new machine. It may
require different motherboard/IDE chipset stuff to be compiled in, unless
you're using one of the all-built-in kernels that comes off the install CD.
At least, if it doesn't work, you can always move the disk back to the old
mobo/cpu to fix it :)
You'll want to recompile the kernel anyway, as the athlon optimisations are
different from the Pentium ones.
