Yes. If you set up your xbox the same way, the next time you log onto live it'll ask you if you want to migrate your acct to the new box. I did and everything's been fine when I upgraded from a premium to an elite box.

yeah, just choose "recover gamertag" instead of "join xbox live"

is the account info stored on the console or the hard drive? Couldn't you just take the hard drive from the broken unit and put it on the new one?

Yup. Don't need to worry about recovering your GamerTag.
