If you have a remote (serial) console set up, then that document works just 
fine. If you don't have that, then I'm not sure that upgrade is possible[1] - 
sshd was one of the first daemons to fail to start when I did my upgrade so 
you'd be hard pressed to continue after the first reboot.


[1] well, haven't tried it, but you'd probably have to scp an sshd compiled on 
5.x and I'm not sure what else before booting the 5.x kernel.
