If the hard drive device name is the same from old to new, this will 
work fine under F13.  If not, you can boot up LiveCD and change the 
device name appropriately in /etc/fstab, and it will come up fine.

Windows is another story.  Major hardware changes usually require a 
complete reload, unless you use a tool like StorageCraft which can 
handle bare metal restores and the related driver problems.
