I suggest you thoroughly read the datastax documentation on cassandra
replication.  The change you are planning is big - make sure to try it
in a test environment first.  Also, you might find you don't really
need Cassandra's rack aware feature, and can operate using
(Gossiping)PropertyFileSnitch.  The rack feature is listed as an
"anti-pattern" here:
http://www.datastax.com/docs/1.2/cluster_architecture/anti_patterns

Here are some recent discussions on this list:
