Question regarding table transfer

Hi,
I am in the process of converting mysql tables to postgres by means of
mysqldump and then mysql2pgsql tool. However, the tables are very
large (>2Gbs) and I would like to recreate some of these database tables
in mysql on different machines and then dump and convert them to postgres
on that machine, after which I would copy the newly converted tables back
to postgresql on the original server machine. This way, I could convert
the databases at a much quicker speed, because many machines would be
working on conversion at one time. Does postgres allow me to simply copy
the contents of data/base directory of machine a to the data/base
directory of machine b, so that machine b will now be able to include the
tables of machine a's postgres database in its own database?
