migrate from RH 7.3 to Mandrake 9.2, keep user accounts

I want to migrate from Red Hat 7.3 to Mandrake 9.2, but I want to keep user accounts, is it sufficient to copy /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files or I have to do something more than this?

Thanks Spiros.

I'm also interested in migration between Linux distros. I want to make a move from FC2 to Gentoo but would like to keep my KDE configuration, favorites, user accounts and files too. I hope I can find answers to this somwhere on this board.
