I did use the disc(s) I have. The new motherboard is an AMD 64
m/b. Old one was 32 bit. Installed 64 bit version of SUSE for
new m/b. All my etc config files were backed up (tar) to
another computer. The only partition that was formated was the
root partition. Home and all the others were left alone.
