8 Cloning works fairly well. Especially for architectures that are so
9 close to each other as Athlon X2 and Phenom. I've done it for an upgrade
10 from one of the original Athlon 64 to a Phenom just a few months ago.
11 Just make sure your kernel contains all necessary drivers.
13 Also, udev will usually detect your network interfaces as new interfaces
14 and give them different numbers (eth1 instead of eth0 and so on).
