I suspect that this won't work if the host architecture is different.
It shouldn't be hard though to mount the root partition as RW on
another computer with the desired archicture.
One question that comes to mind: How do you handle mail? By default
crond send mail whenever a cron job generates output. You may not need
cron though, in which case this isn't an issue.
Do you need /etc/hostname?
