Ok, so the back story is that something hardware-related in my
older machine fileserver died, all the info's on a series of SCSI
disks, and my other desktop doesn't support SCSI, nor does it have the
space for the drives/card (yay for dell), thus I need to either buy
replacement parts or buy a new machine (I'm weighing the pros and cons
So I was wondering if my disk with all of the compiled binaries for
my 1.2 GHz could simply be moved from one machine to another and just
work without having to reinstall or recompile FreeBSD or not. I would
think that I could just move the drive to another machine and boot
from it, given the fact that Intel loves making their instruction sets
backwards compatible, but I just need to make sure since I don't want
to invest in something more expensive and discover I have to start
from square one.
Another valid question I suppose is whether or not I can move the
machine from a box with a Celeron CPU to one with an AMD CPU (not sure
if vendors matter even though ISAs are the same).
Overall, time is of more value to me right now than anything else.
