Sure. Pick the Server install disk.

Yes. I prefer Reiser myself.  (v. 3)

Almost certainly not.. Because things might be installed in different 
folders, slightly different versions used, etc.   Of course having the 
old files will make it quicker to configure things, but by blindly 
copying config files I think you'd be inviting trouble and end up 
wasting more money than you gain.

Why would you like to move by the way?
