OpenBSD Overtake - Solution?!


I just had a cool idea!
I have a Debian box at a root-server hoster such as schlund or hetzner.

They wont install OpenBSD on my box for me, which i can understand.

I posted a mail a few days ago, how i could install OpenBSD whilest i am
running Linux.

Well, that aint possibel, BUT, what about the following:

1.) Disable Swap
2.) remove Swap
3.) create OpenBSD File System
4.) Copy/Rsync a OpenBSD system onto it.
5.) Edit ip/hostname/driver, etc..
6.) write bootloader.

What do you think?
Is it that easy?
