Default Slik legs and manfrotto head?

I have a Slik 700dx tripod with the panhead that came with it. Can I use the Manfrotto 327RC2 trigger ballhead on these legs?

If so, how do I make the new head mount on the legs? I took the slik panhead off, but the Manfrotto only hasa screw hole in the bottom of it, and there is only ascrew hole on the legs.

If it won't work, what legs are the best bang for the buck that will hold the new trigger ballhead?

Thanks!
Dave

I figured it out.

All I had to do was tighten down the base screw and rotate the head until it came off. I thought I had to unscrew the hexnut in the center, which is wrong.
