Transferring a Fedora install from an Intel PC to an AMD PC

I have an FC2 install that has been working for years on a dual intel processor system, I now want to move the install to a single AMD processor system.

Could it possibly be as simple as just plugging in the hard drive(s) in the AMD based system and let it sort itself out ? Or is this all going to go horribly wrong ?

Would it be best to upgrade to FC5 before or after moving the install ?

Advice appreciated ...

It might work but your bound to get some issues. I wold back up your home dir and then move it to a fresh install on the new computer. this way you can keep all your files and bookmarks and settings.
