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


The light of the righteous shines brightly,
but the lamp of the wicked is snuffed out.
