[kwlug-disc] Swapping drives on server

I've got two almost identical servers:
1) live server, dell 1750,
- 1 xeon cpu
- 1 gig ram
- no hardware raid, running 1 drive for OS, 2 drives for data on linux raid
This server is live

2) backup server, dell 1750
- 2 xeon cpu's
- 8 gigs of ram
- has a hardware raid controller in it that I don't want to make use of

How boring will my day be if I pull the three drives from server 1 and 
insert them into server B (I don't mind a few minutes of downtime to 
make the switch and reboot)?  Did I just upgrade my server?  Or is linux 
likely to insert some excitement into my life?
