Cisco Catalyst 4510 flex slot and moving modules

Hello experts,
I have a Cisco Catalyst 4510 with the Supervisor Engine V.  All slots are full except for slot 10 which is the flex slot.  According to the Cisco documentation, because I do not run the Supervisor Engine V-10GE, the only modules I can use in the #10 Flex Slot are the (WS-X4302-GB) and the (WS-X4604-GWY).  And it just so happens that I have a (WS-X4302-GB) in slot 9.  Ultimately, I have a (WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V) module that I want to use in this switch.

So my question is:  Can I simply move my (WS-X4302-GB) down one slot to the flex slot and put my (WS-X4548-GB-RJ45V) in the now empty slot 9?  If so, will all the configuration for the two ports on the (WS-X4302-GB) carry down from slot to slot or will I have to reconfigure them?
