Novell foxpro files copied to windows folder


I have established from the following question that I can make a clone of a foxpro database by simply copying a numberof files (see: https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/25153398/Make-a-copy-of-Foxpro-database-from-Novell-to-Windows.html)

I need to confirm that the theory still holds given the files will be copied from a novell server to a windows server.

So to move a foxpro database from NOVELL to WINDOWS all i need to do is:
1) navigate to the folder containing the foxpro database files on the novell server from a windows client
2) copy the files with the following extensions *.dbf, *.fpt, *.cdx, *.dbc, *.dct, *.dcx, *.qpr
3) navigate to a folder on the windows client and paste the files
4) Connect to the foxpro database on the windows client using an appropriate application and oledb connectionstring.

should that just work without issue irrelevant of the fact they are being copied between two different OSs.
