One caution is that you need a fairly recent kernel, 2.6.12 or newer, so that
the sata disk will be recognized.  My first attempt to install on my new
computer could not find the hard disk.  There is a netinstall iso available
with a 2.6.12 kernel that works fine, though.  I guess, though, that if you
are able to mount your new disk to do the transfer, your kernel will be good.
