There's another possible problem.
Measure the distance between your rear dropouts. If it's 130mm, that's good. A spacer for your freehub body, grind off the rivets from your cassette, and you're good-to-go.
If it's 126mm, the new hub is going to be a skosh too wide. Options are to spread your dropouts to acommodate the wider hub or to force fit the wider hub into your frame every time that you remove your rear wheel.
