Debian's and the kernel's boot time hardware detection stuff has taken my hard 
drive through four generations of computers without any hassle, other than 
X11.  I expect everything should just work, and if you didn't change video 
cards, or video chipsets, then X should work too.

To reconfigure X, I think you should be fine with

	dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

though I haven't had to do this on Kubuntu yet.
