Like the other guys said ,you might want to check your saw for drift. Below:

You will need to do this every time you change blades. Also, make sure the blade is adjusted for tracking and tension before you check for drift. They all drift. Using the resaw fence allows you to compensate for the drift.

I have successfully resawed some smaller pieces using the fence and featherboard as you described. I fed the wood into the blade very slowly, not something you want to do with a big piece.
