Blog migration from old server to new server

I have recently moved my blog over to GoDaddy and got everything set up and running well. Since I was running the latest version of BlogEngine.net, I decided to use the installer on GoDaddy's to install a fresh copy of BlogEngine.net and then copied over my posts, images and themes. All worked out well except for the categories. I tried to recreate them, but they don't have the same id's as the old blog. Since the old and new blogs are the same version, could I just copy the categories.xml from the old App_Data folder to the new one?
