"when I plug the new cloned drive into a new unit, nothing is showing up on my network. The only thing that's different is my original drive was an IDE. My new drive is a SATA. But surely that'd have nothing to do with it??"

You have to understand that Linux isn't fully transportable. Two things are going on here I think and they are somewhat the same.

Linux uses two things to use a resource. One is a driver and the other is a way to name it for the system to use. One or both are wrong.
