Upgrade versus ReInstall

I've currently got centos 4 installed on a box.

If i want to move to centos5, is it possible to upgrade or do i have to do a fresh reinstall?

If i *can* update, can someone point to a good link or instructions on how to do the upgrade and any possible gotchas (fwiw my current installation is on a pair of mirrored lvm drives)

thanks

Maybe this wiki page is a good starting point:

This is the only recommended way to upgrade:
