Just ensure that
    1)  the other machine's hardware can handle the disk (naturally :-))
    2)  the kernel of the other box supports the filesystem you used
            on the disk (also quite natural :-))
    3)  either the UIDs match, or else you are prepared to deal with
            wacky file ownerships
