Default Over floating hardboard

Since there were three layers of linoleum on my kitchen floor and glued down carpet in the adjoining dining area, I elected to tear up the old carpet and scraped it down as well as I could. Their was a height differential between the two room which would become level if I put down 1/8 inch hardboard and butted it to the linoleum. This as an alternative to a "leveling" compound. Can you see any problems with this approach and should the hardboard be screwed to the subfloor or just allowed to float?
