Only if the existing OS is Windows 2000 Advanced Server. You'll also want to re-patch the OS.

By re-patch you mean applying the Hotfixes and service packs?

sure it is safe, but it will bring the OS and all registry settings right back to a fresh install.

meaning, that you will have to re-apply any patches to the OS and that you will also have to reinstall any apps.
