I am going to give the 6.0 install a burl tonight on my box at home.  I
don't really see a problem in running 6.0 or 5.2 depending on what you have
got, however if you want kde and an updates to the Xfree server (say you
have a newer AGP card like a Matrox G200 that doesn't run with the default
5.2 xfree) then 6.0 is the way to go because the updates are all on the CD.

You can patch 5.2 to the same level but if you are not all that interested
in getting your "hands dirty" go for 6.0 as it is all going to be there for

I'll let you know my findings tomorrow.
