I want to move my C drive from one computer to another.  The disk is a Seagate 2.5G with Windows 95 on it, formatted as a single FAT32 partition.

It's currently in a Pentium Pro 200 with 64M of RAM, with a 12x CDROM, a 3C509B, a SoundBlaster 16, and a Matrox Millenium.

The destination machine is a Pentium 200 MMX with 64M of RAM, an 8X mitsumi CDROM, and another 3c509B.  I intend to move the SoundBlaster and the Matrox cards with the hard drive.

What I'm hoping will happen is that the disk will transplant over there and everything will work fine.  Will it work?

Yes, it will work.  Windows will just think that you have changed hardware components, which you have.  You should go through the PnP process again (using add new hardware in control panel) and make sure that all of your hardware is recognized.  Manually install drivers for any hardware that is not recognized.
