Installing Mandrake 10.0 on hard drive for another computer


I'm installing 10.0 on a hard drive that is destined to be put onto another computer. Right now it's being installed onto a computer running AMD XP 2700+ and will be going onto a AMD XP 2800+ 64bit. Now just pushing the hard drive over onto that machine shouldn't be a problem should it?

It will be a problem. The Mandrake installer will autodetect the AMD XP 2700+ hardware and install a system configured to the hardware that it finds. Then you will move the hard drive to a computer that is different enough that the Mandrake system probably will not even boot. I suggest that you do the installation on the final hardware configuration.
