Please wrap your lines at about 72 characters.

I've no experience with kernel panics as a result of this.  If you run a
generic kernel, it's as likely to understand that hardware as an install
image is.

Biggest problem I've hit is when controllers move the drive around on the
chain (i.e. ad0 is ad2 on the new hardware).  In that case you have to fix
the boot loader and /etc/fstab.

If you have more difficulty than that, I'd be curious to hear about it,
as it'd be news to me.
