Oh, and don't forget to correctly configure time zone and set time the 
same first.  I use ntpd to keep mine accurate, but if you don't and time 
on the new box is ahead, then it may consider a lease prematurely 
expired and available for assignment on a new request.  Leases are GMT 
based so if you set correct time but in a different time zone, it would 
also impact expiry of every entry in those files.
