Upgrade path

Can I install a Smart 5300 controller in place of our 4300 and will it pull the information off the disks and self configure, or will I need to do a reload / restore. We have a ML570 with it's "B" channel full of 36 GIG drives, our user/Group drive. We have purchased a storageworks disk enclosure and a 5304 Smart controller. I need to find the most direct route to upgrade the controller, move the existing "D" drive from the ML570 to the StorageWorks rack and add more disks.
