I agree. On a new server, go straight to 6.2. The only reason to go to 5.5, is if you must to a "make world" upgrade on an existing server. You'd want to avoid upgrade pain, when possible. Additionally, 6.x is the only release getting any improvement.
6.2 seems to have particular issues with NICs right about now, as the timer code was changes and some of the drivers need some work. But it is not released yet either.
