Can I swap hot-pluggable Ultra3s between 2 ML370 G3s?

I just got a backup ML370 G3 (with 2 36.4GB Ultra3 drives) that is not formatted at all. Our current data server is an ML370 G3(also with 2 36.4GB Ultra3 drives) running Windows Server 2003 Sm. Bus. Edition. Someone else set up the existing data server, so I am not sure what was done. Do I have to set up the new ML370 using the SmartStart CD and then load the OS, or can I just hot-plug the Ultra 3 36.4 GB from bay 0 of the active data server into the 0 bay of the new ML370 and in essence create a mirror image of the existing data server?

Pretty much yes, few points where you willing to verify System ROM, Firmware for Array controller match them, and from F9: Boot Controller order, O/S selection.
