So after three years my motherboard (Asus M2N-0MX) has died off. As I go shopping for its replacement tomorrow I have a concern about the data that I currently have on the drives wtihin. I'm currently running BSD 6.2, and am wondering if there would be any concern with installing a new OS on that system, would it be better to just install the latest BSD version, and are there any pitfalls that I should watch for to make sure I don't end up losing 750gb's of data.
The setup consists of the following (to the best of my knowledge):
Pioneer DVD drive
3ware RAID card
four 250gb SATA drives in RAID 5 config
Thanks to anyone that can offer some advice, or just to confirm if I am over thinking things.
EDIT: Thanks Dennis for the edit. Typing with a head cold, not a good idea.
