To transplant the drive to another computer?

I've done that, but you have to beware that you can install a system
that won't work (without some fiddling) on another computer.  I've been
lucky that there was only a minimum of fiddling required, but it's
possible to create a system that can't read the hard drive, and you need
to know how to rebuild the initrd to resolve it.
