Can I use a 1 1/8 bike fork on a 1 fork? ?

I bought a bike that doesn't have a suspension fork and I would like to use the one i 

already own that way I don't have to buy a new one. Any chance I could swap out the 

headset?

    You can't stick a 1 1/8" tube into a 1" hole.

    You better make damn sure both forks have the same "offset" and length.  Otherwise...you could be putting undue stress on the head-tube and crack it.  And that crack will occur at the worst possible moment.  Result: frame failure - crash & burn.
