Can I simply connect a Mac Mini Server and MacBook together with an ethernet cable?

I want to reinstall Mac OS X Server on the DVDless Mac Mini. There is no separate AirPort device.

So do I just connect the two machines with an ethernet cable, start the remote install program on the MacBook, then restart the Mac Mini with the Option key pressed?

Thanks.
