486 -> pentium

If I want to replace an existing 486 SCO box with a Pentium, can I just
swop over the existing SCSI hard disk ?

Thanks

As long as the disk controller is the same, why not? (Other devices need
to be the same as well, RAM is not an issue, but BUS type is as well as
SCO version)

1. What Happens Going 486->Pentium?

I'm getting ready to upgrade my system from a 5x86-133/VLB platform to
an AMD K5-166/PCI one. Hard drive containing Linux is IDE.

Is there anything I have to do to ensure a smooth transition? Or will
everything just go auto, as I hope?

TIA,
Tim
