mysql data insertion

I have quite a bit of records I need to insert into a database. My question
is, would it be possible to insert them even though the key fields might be
the same. I'm basically wanting to add records that were added after a
backup was restored, thereby the new records have taken the old record's,
beyond a certain point, record IDs.

Can this easily be done or would I need to make sure the record IDs started
with a number after the last record in the database table right now? Would
the IDs be ignored/changed if I were to just import the data directly into
mysql? I definitely do not want to lose any data...
