You don't need it. Just upgrade your source tree via cvsup and make 
buildworld and installworld. You can find further information about this 
kind of upgrading in FreeBSD Handbook. Anyway, FreeBSD 5.x has a new, 
better and faster filesystem and if You want to use it You should 
repartition your hard drive with an 5.4 install disc, but You could just 
refresh to 5.4 and keep the old filesystem untouched.
