Can I make a clone of my Imac g3 hdd and use it in my emac g4?

I have an old Emac g4 with a dead hard drive and I wish to know if I can put a clone of my Imac g3's drive in it. I understand that you can switch hdds around in windows computers but will this work with macs?

Favor from:

Yes, if the OS on it is newer than that eMac model. Some commercial software may refuse to run, and a very small number of preferences, such as the Energy Saver settings, won't carry over.
