To the best of my memory, this looks to be correct.  As long as you have cabled up the correct "alternate" ports, easy-setup should work.
If you have problems, let us know here and we'll help out!  Be sure to share some of the stacking outputs like:

show slot
show stacking
show stacking-support
show stacking stack-ports
