upgrading remote server

I just reinstalled a server that was out for repair. It's on the network
in the data center, but no applications are running on it, yet.
I thought this would be a perfect time to upgrade the OS. It's currently
running 6.2 Release, I want to bring it up to 7.2 Release.
I'd like to do this remotely, if possible, since going to the data
center is a pain.
I've been reading the upgrade chapter in "Absolute FreeBSD", and it
seems like the best option is to download the source files for 7.2 and
upgrade from sources.
>>> Sanity check: Am I on the right track?
I've never done a major upgrade remotely, but I guess the worst that can
happen is I have to burn a CD and drive into the data center.
Any thoughts, much appreciated.
