can i use the same HDD after a MOBO swap?
Heres the problem
I have fedora core 2 test 1 installed on a computer...this shouldnt matter just fyi... have been working flawlessly running for about 4 months without a reboot, i love linux. just two nights ago my MOBO crapped out on me. ive never seen anything like this. i want to replace the MOBO with a different one. heres the catch, im one of those people that is always going to backup their data later... so i want to put a new mobo in and hook all the old periphrials to it and use the existing HDD. can i get at my home folder somehow to save me data? or will i possibly be able to boot from the current linux install on the hdd even though its a different mobo? i dont think thats possible. but if i use another AMD board compatible with my current processor then maybe?
so... can i either get at my data from another computer somehow? or can i reuse this hdd and get at my data?
