If you rebuild an exact replica of that server (e.g., same name, same disk partitions, same software, etc.) you should be able to put the databases back in their original locations and use them. I recommend copying the files instead of moving them. That way, if something does go wrong in the restoration process you still have your original offline backup copy.
