Hello. I am going to build a new computer very soon. I plan on using the harddrive from the old computer which has Fedora Core 5 on it. My question is: Would I have to reinstall Fedora? I am only replacing the MotherBoard, CPU and Ram, the harddrive, sound card and video card are going to stay the same.

Typically, it depends on the similarities of the two motherboards (mainly the southbridge). If the southbridge's are similar (same manufacturer ie: VIA, Intel, SiS, etc..) there's a good chance it will work...but it's never guaranteed. Good luck!
