Sure, except anything you may have changed in
/usr/{bin,sbin,share,lib,libexec} will get overwritten.  Make sure you
elect not to newfs any of your filesytems :)  In fact, if you know your
exact mbr info, you should be able to boot the install floppy, go to
the partition editor, set it up, write, reboot, and you're done.
