Upgrading 4.11-STABLE to 5.4-STABLE

I want to upgrade my 4.11-STABLE server to 5.4-STABLE. I'm very used to using 
cvsup to upgrade between minor releases (IIRC the box was 4.9 or 4.10 
originally) but a jump between major versions is scaring me a bit :)

Has anybody done this recently. Were there any major problems other than 
mentioned in UPDATING?

I don't particularly want to install from fresh if possible, due to the hassle 
of removing the server from the bottom of the pile (too poor to afford a 
rack ;(), opening the case up and fitting a CD-ROM etc.
