With processors, the only time you really run into problems is if you 
are doing a major hardware downgrade. Moving from a 64bit AMD Opteron to 
an Intel P4, for example. Or moving from a P4 to a 386 or 486.

I would expect moving from a 1GHz AMD (32bit Athlon, I'd guess) to a P4 
2.2GHz would work without a problem.
