Has anyone on this list done that? If so, what were the successful

I decided to do this not because I'm abandoning the Mac per se...but
because I need to use my mac again as a computer :-)
I guess my question is...Would I be able to just put my existing ide
from the mac into the pc, run the pc installer and have the drive
recognised? OR is it more prudent to install the pc software and then
transfer the files via FTP or firewire hookup.
My understanding is you can not swap the drives. I also understand
that if you were using SLE8 you probably could and would have to do a
repair once in the new computer. ( have not tried this, but I would
like to if I can ever afford SLE8) I did the reinstall and had to use
the ftp and samba to transfer the data. I have found that it is a bit
easier to configure a broader range of hardware under the pc version
and 9.0 rocks. Yast2 has come a long way.
Any advice/help would be appreciated. :-)
There was an email on the suse-linux-e(a)suse.com list a while back that
explained some of it. I couldn't find it this morning and I'm running
out of time. I believe Chris Mahmood wrote it around Christmas if you
want to search the archive.
Hope it helps. Good luck,
