I'd put the drive in and try to boot - doubtful due to module differences, etc. If you can get it to boot, and load the modules you need, save the new module config with 'depmod -a'

If it doesn't start, I wouldn't risk it any further. I would pop the 11.2 dvd in the drive and just do a reinstall while PRESERVING your home partition. If you have saved your rpms with 'keepackages=1' then reinstall and update to current should be a 30 minute ordeal.

Good luck. Let us know how it comes out.
