Since you have two dedicated servers, then the second one can serve as
practice staging. Just set up MultiSite, try importing the 3 blogs,
and see how it goes. If you mess up, try again. :) no harm, no
downtime. When you're ready, move the dns to point at the new server.
Just don't edit/change anything on the original, and you should always
have a safe backup.
