Upgrading Motherboard under RH FC3


I currently run RH FC3.

I will be replacing a motherboard soon, but keeping everything else and would like to understand what I need to do once the new hardware is installed. Can someone tell me what I need to do with the OS/boot to make this work? The hardware part is ez - do I need to reinstall any software? I am hoping I can leave all of my apps in place as they are customized just right. Is the OS "smart" enuf to find changes and set them correctly?

Both old and new motherboards use AMD XP processor, but new motherboard has different support chips (so no 32bit to 64 bit worries, but there are board differences of course).

Any clues would be appreciated.

If you are using FC kernels then your system should detect the hardware change and adjust accordingly, but I am not sure if the process is flawless.
