For centos 5.x

Two questions regarding upgrading hardware or system.

1- If I were to shut off the server and add more ram, switch out ram, remove
one of the two cpus, or replace the two cpus with bigger or smaller
ones.....Would I just be able to restart the server or would I have to do
something with the configuration somewhere?

2- If I built another system, slightly different motherboard but most of the
rest the same as far as hardware, would taking a drive from the old system
and adding it to the new system work correctly and recognize what it needs?

Thanks for any advice on the upgrading.
