It depends on how you want to upgrade. I read both reinstall/reconfigure
and real upgrade in the wordt upgrade here.

If you choice to reinstall then you could go straith to 6. This is
needed to gain the full features. You can only use USF2 if you have done

If you choice to upgrade fully though CVS then it may be smart to first
upgrade to 4-stable, then 5.3, then 5-stable, then 6.0 and then 6.1.
This also means you will not get the full features of 6.
