Upgrading 5.3 to 5.4

I am a fairly novice user of FreeBSD. I just recently built two boxes with
5.3, and now that 5.4 is out, I was curious how easy it would be to upgrade.
The "Migration" guide deals with 4.X => 5... do I essentially follow the
Source upgrade instructions? Is there a better/easier (for a novice!) way to
do this, especially since I am already at 5.3? These boxes are active
servers- how long would I be down? Is it even advisable for me to try this?

Thank You!
