Transferring Hard Drive to Newer Computer

Hi there --

I recently acquired a system, minus the hard drive, that is newer than one that is currently used in production. The current system is running SuSE 9.1. Is it feasible to move the hard drive as-is from the older computer into the newer one? Or would a better approach be to simply do a scratch install once the hard drive is transplanted into the newer computer?

Well a scratch install sounds like the better option, as all your devices will get setup properly during install, but I reckon a HDD swap would work as well.
