Many thanks to the following people:
Heilke, Rainer
Bill Voight
Briscoe, Kris
Caparroso, Nelson
Jonathan A. Zdziar
Jonas Blberg

There wasn't a complete consensus, but almost everyone agreed that I could
work. I looked at the physical path for disk 0 on both machines and they
were the same. In addition, the bootblk for both machines seemed to be the
same file. 

I won't be able to try it until I get my E450 rackmount kit, but I'm
confident that it will work.

Thanks for the help!
