I am currently running FreeBSD v5.1 (yes, I am a Bad Person(tm)), and 
need to update it to v7.0. Questions:

1. Can I go straight from v5.1 to v7.0? Or do I need to make a stop at v6.x?

2. I'm Unix shell literate with a reasonable level of Solaris 
sysadmin experience, but have no experience (yet) with FreeBSD 
updates.  Is there a site with step-by-step instructions for the 
uninitiated, to help minimize Pr(failure)?

3. Anything else I should know?

Muchas gracias....
