Unhappy Switching to different PC

Hello, I have been running Centos 4 email server on an old compaq computer and finally got a new HPProliant DL385 G5P AMD Operton 64.

Is there any way or any guides on how to transfer the os and email settings from one machine to the other.

tried to upgrade to centos 5 and start from scratch, but the nic cards do not seem to see the network. the cards are labeled eth1,2,3,4 and the os sees them as eth0.1.2.3

it will not activate the nic when tring to do dhcp and it does not see the network when i put on a static ip.

thanks in advance
