I'm planning to upgrade my Ubuntu box with new hardware and only the old hard drive will survive. Processor will go amd 1800+ to 2400+, memory will increase from 700meg to 1gb and the video card will go from accent nvidia mxsomething to ati radeon 9800pro. Obviously also the motherboard will be changed.
The question is, that do I need to make some preparations before chancing the parts or do the Ubuntu work fine after changing the parts? Of course I have to install new video card drivers, but other than that? Or should I backup my home-directories and reinstall everything? If yes, is there anything other to backup before?
