Well as far as I can tell from the upgrading point of view it make no 
difference whether you're coming from 5.2.1 or 5.3.

Well I have 5.3BETA running on several machines without any problems. If I 
were you, I would try both. Install 5.2.1 to see if this works and then 
upgrade 5.3BETA. If any problems come up just reinstall 5.2.1.
