Can SQL Server 2008 Standard Edition 2 node cluster be upgraded to SQL Server 2008 Developers edition

Hello,
     We have SQL Server 2008 standard edition installed on a two node cluster.  I need to know if I can upgrade our two node cluster from, SQL Server 2008 standard edition, to MSDE 2008 SQL Server Developer Edition?
     The SQL databases are used only by our developers on a non-production network.  The operating system, on the clustered servers, is Windows Server 2008 Datacenter, No Hyper-V.  
     If this is possible, can anybody point me to a white paper or best practices to perform an in place upgrade?

Thank you for your time and help!

Here is the Upgrade Matrix directly from Microsoft

Incidentally MSDE <> Developer Edition.  MSDE was the old name (back in SQL Server 2000) for the free edition and what is now called SQL Server Express Edition.  The Developer Edition is not free.
