I did this. When I had the office I had an Origin 200 and an Origin 2000. 
I took the disk from one and put it in the other. Also, someone else said 
they saw an Origin 200 in an Origin 2000 rack. Remember that there is also 
the Vault (JBOD) that looks just like the Origin 200.

You could shove that PCI card into an Origin 2000 if you had the XIO to 
PCI adaptor I would bet? Also, I had seen a setup where the Origin 2000 
was cabled up to an Onyx2 and I'm pretty sure it was one system?

A friend was just telling me the other day he is working with 0-day IBM 
systems (Xeon) that have the same setup... NUMALink the rackmount boxes 
together to make one big system, similar to Origin 200 and Origin 350.
