	Might be possible, certainly wouldn't call it wise.
	Unless this is an intellectual exercise, get a new disk and
install fresh.  You'll lose the accumulated cruft, not have to worry
about bad configuration files, and can mount the old disk read-only
for as long as it takes to believe you have all the desirable data
