Can I put the parts from a Moab DS3 onto an 04 FSR XC Pro Disc

I've been wanting to get a bike for a few weeks. I really don't have a great budget so I was looking at older second hand bikes for some budget deals. I found a Schwinn Moab DS3 on craigslist and bought it for $90 dollars. Which is pretty much exactly what I was looking for, inexpensive but I can do some trail stuff. Turns out what I thought was a 17.5 inch bike was actually a 15 inch bike.

Earlier in the day I was at a bike co-op and saw an 18" (I am 5'9" so this is the right height for me) '04 specialized FSR XC Pro Disc FRAME on sale for $100.

My question is how much trouble will I have putting all the parts except the frame from the DS3 onto the FSR?

The FSR usually has 100mm front fork but the ds3 has 89mm. Aside from that discrepancy I, in my uneducated opinion, can't see any differences between the two bikes.

I would like to upgrade to 100mm forks when I have the chance as well as hopefully getting hydraulic discs off the bat (the moab forks have mounts for discs and v-brakes).
