Upgrading W2k Server to New Harware Platform



We are planning to upgrade our W2k server which is also
running SQL Server to a new harware platform.

What we would like to do is setup our new server with
W2k, then do a complete data and system restore from tape.

Will this work?

My concerns are:

- will W2k pick up new hardware?
- will security info be restored?
- will server name, etc be restored?

Is there a better method for doing this?

but want to keep old settings and name and name intact.
Is there a fast an secure way ob doing so? Any
