Making hardwood floors out of Knotty Pine panels?

My dining room and hall have really nice knotty pine panels. Problem is, I don't prefer that look in those spaces. I have carpet in both rooms which I would love to replace with wood or wood laminate, especially due to my allergies and the ease in cleaning. Now I'm wondering if I took the panels down and replaced them with sheet rock (instead of painting them), if it would be possible to use those wood panels for flooring?

    Pine is a soft wood and is easily dented and scratched. Not used as hardwood, but you could certainly seal it with a hard finish.
