Depends on how you look at it.
You perform a binary update via sysintall to 5.4, but that's an upgrade
in my eyes and no reinstallation.
I think not to update it means that you destroy your old bsd installation
and perform a new one. And then you'll need that floppis (or a cdrom drive thats
able to handle bootable cds).
