what errors do you get with the flar method? I've been able to move
flars across platforms, but there's something goofy with the how
the flar is created. You may need to specify cpio instead of pax,
even though it should default to cpio. Just try both.

If this is critical work, then reinstall to be sure. Don't know about moving
to a different hardware platform, but just cloning a system disk (dump /
restore / install boot block etc) can give problems with things like the
ethernet hardware address, device configuration etc which will have changed.
Probably much less hassle to reinstall, then you are sure it's done right :-)...
