If you have the exact binaries that were used to create the database, 
yes.  If you have ones made of the same minor version and architecture, 
probably.  Beyond that, its a crap shoot.  Even if it loads, you will 
likely have some data corruption or another.  The only reliable method 
of database transfer and recover is through a text dump.
