Connecting An IP Camera Into An Existing SD Analog DVR

Anybody done this? Client has 2 existing DVRs on site and has a spare IP camera from another site. I haven't visited yet to see if they are running RG59 or UTP.

Can it even be done? Feel free to respond with factual info and/or condescending opinions!
