Sorry I posted this one under Win98 questions originally - newcomer to this site.

Hi,

I'm trying to update computers at our local school, and we have the opportunity to replace some of the very old machines with second-hand newer machines whhich have had the hard-drives removed.

Problems are: school computers have licenced applications on the hard-drives which we cannot reinstall (cds are missing).

Is it possible to simply remove the hard-drives from the old machines and put them in the new? OS is win98 2nd edition. What problems might we encounter? What is the difficulty level (I'm a programmer, rather than a builder!!)


Thanks for any help,

Simons
