OLDSERVER
is a Dell 2500 with the onboard SCSI RAID and 2x72GB disks mirror and a 
hot spare.

NEWSERVER
is a Dell 2650 with onboard SCSI RAID and 3x144GB disks.

If I swap the disks in their hot swap trays, can I boot the new 2650 
from the disks
that used to be in the 2500?  Will the RAID controller just recognize them?

Also, can the old 2500 box recognize and initialize the 144GB drives?

Thanks in advance,
-Ben.
