Yes.  Very few applications care where a specific partition is mounted. 
  that is it doesn't matter if / is mounted on hda, sdb, or some other 
device.  The only issues that may arise is in grub.cfg or /etc/fstab. 
Once all the partitions are mounted, you are good to go.

BTW, I have three drives, sda, sdb, and sdc.  sdc is a SSD an dI 
generally boot from that:

/dev/sdc1 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,discard,data=writeback)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw)
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda9 on /usr/src type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda11 on /home type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdb5 on /var type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sdb6 on /tmp type ext3 (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=775)
/dev/sda16 on /mnt/lfs type ext3 (rw)

I'm not sure what you mean by block, but I think answer is no.
