Do you have a backup of the original hard drive, Ben?  If not, you had 
better bring an install disk to reinstall your favorite Linux distribution.

I would also think that, if you have some kind of Windows restore disk 
that you want to install also, you either bring that or run it ahead of 
time.  It might not work if Linux is already installed, or, more likely, 
would overwrite the Linux installation, and everything else on the 
drive.  I don't know if a Windows restore disk would work on a hard 
drive of a different size than was in the PC originally.
