moving system from ide software raid to new box with scsi raid
I currently have a slack 8.1 rack with kernel raid 1 with 2 ide disks.
I need to move the entire system (OS and apps etc, ie a disk copy) to another rack that has different mobo, cpu, NIC etc and a LSI scsi raid card.
The target machine currently has some flavour of redhat on it.
The target machine is hosted so I would like to be able to do this remotely, though I have a pair of hands available at the hosting site.
I currently have a single ide machine to practice on.
A tarball of the source disk is approx 1GB. Assuming I can get the tarball to the target machine, how I might achieve this?
I had thought of untarring to a directory eg /new and messing with fstab or somesuch. But before I work it all out myself I thought I'd save myself a few days and ask you lot.
My main worry is the new controller and NIC. I'm hoping that the old setup will still boot on the LSI controller but I have no experience of this.
Any help/pointers to RTFM much appreciated.
