Default Drive mirroring

I just recently got a new computer. I'd like to use a drive mirroring program to mirror my old drive to the one on the new computer in order to keep all of my installed programs/music/data/etc... I'm hoping that windows will detect all new hardware at boot and install the proper drivers for them. Will this happen? Will it be a nightmare? Also, how would windows handle registration/activation for the new computer?

Oh, it's windows xp home btw.

You can "ghost" your drive, using Symantec Ghost, but putting it in your new computer and booting off it would be impossible.
