motherboard change

I am running redhat 9 with a Asuse socket 7 motherboard with a AMD Duron 650mhz Processer. I just bought a Asuse A7V8X-X Motherboard With a AMD Athlon XP 2600 processer to replace the older slower stuff. Is it reccomended that i reinnstall redhat 9 once i change the board and processer? Or would it Figure everything out on its own and set itself up? I have changed boards on window systems without having to reinstall and was wondering if redhat may work also. Thanks for any help or input on this topic.

it should definetaly work ...
i mean you may have to install some "new things" or set them up .. but other than that, you should be fine ...
i actually did this about i think 3 months ago or so .... and when i booted up it was like nothing ever changed ... there was nothing out of the ordinary and it was as if i didn't even change anything .... it was nothing like in windows, when you have to sit there for 20-30mins while it picks up all kinds of crap ...
