New motherboard old install, what should I do to prepare?

Hi, I just recently purchased a new motherboard and as soon as the ram arrives I will be installing it. I was woundering if any one could give me tips as to what I need to do to make sure I have xubunutu running good after the new mb is installed. I will be switching from my pci graphics card to the intergetaed on the new motherboard so I know I need to generate a new xog ( i know the line to do that is at the top in it os I think I'm good here). The new mb will be a Biostar P4M900-M4. So any suggestions?

I can't say for certain, but I don't think you'll have to do anything other than what you mentioned. I have a portable hard disk with Xubuntu on it, and I switch between several different computers without any problems.

To be efficient, I would take take of all packages that might be affected by the hardware change with "dpkg-reconfigure --all". This will also take care of xorg.

Backups are a good idea as well.
