Windows Deployment, can I copy images?

We are running windows deployment services at our head office for deployment of PCs for that area (we own many different "divisions" housed in different buildings in the area).  We have another group of divisions that we own about an hour away.  What I would like to do is set up a box with WDS and just copy over the images from our corporate server to the box I will be running the secondary WDS on.  Can I just do a straight copy or do I need to recreate the images since these will be hosted on a different machine?

Yep - Just export the images and import to the new server.
 
We do this all the time for our customers (we are an OEM). They send us an image, we import it into out deployment server and away it goes.
