I recently went from a Pentium 166 to a PII 300, and the route I took was
number 4. My hard drives are both IDE, but I do have a SCSI CDROM drive.
Everything went just fine. I did later recompile the kernel for the PII,
but I doubt it was really necessary. However, in the process of recompiling
the kernel I redid some of the other peripherals to get them working better,
or in the case of the sound card to get it working at all.
