  be prepared to install new boot blocks.  booting from cd should do
  this for you

  you might want to upgrade 1.6->3->5.  if i were doing it on a running
  system remotely I would do that.  But with booting the 5 disk and
  doing 'upgrade', you probably don't need to

  after you are done, check /usr/include for ancient bits.  these should
  be removed automatically, but some old /usr/include stuff if present
  will cause huge amounts of trouble building various things in pkgsrc.
  after updating do 'find /usr/include -ctime +10' and study what's
