Changing motherboard on SuSE 9.2 system with large LVM


I want to upgrade my SuSE 9.2 server with a fresher motherboard, and was wondering if anyone has experience/knowledge in such a procedure. I am not too familiar with how SuSE or Linux in general acts if being treated with a new motherboard.

Would it be a painless procedure or would it require a lots of reconfiguring at a low level?

Judging from other threads here other people have succesfully done it. Afaik my current system has a standard kernel.

And IF the system should fail and I would have to reinstall it after the change - would that completely trash my crypted LVM that spans over 7 drives?

Thanks in advance,
