Assuming you want to do a binary upgrade, it looks okay.  
Booting the 6.0 CD and doing an "upgrade" install should work,
although a few of your configuration files may get overwritten 
without the extra steps in that article.

If you want to do a source upgrade, just follow the directions 
in the Handbook.
