I have Fedora 11 installed on a machine where the harddrive is failing, each time I boot it up it reports several errors. My plan is to do a fresh install of Fedora 12 on a new (larger SATA) harddrive then copy any data that remains uncorrupted off the old drive by plugging it in to the IDE port. Are there any config files I need to get off the failing harddrive so that I can mount the volume set once I have the new system set up, or will it get recognised automatically?
Any other gotchas I should watch out for? For example, I assume I should create the volume set on my fresh install with a different name?
