Take a backup.

Try the upgrade on a backup server first.

Install the new version, restart mysql, and see if anything breaks.

Then if it works do it on the production server.

I tried what AlucardZero suggested
when i do the upgrade using rpm -Uvh mysql packages
it conflicts with the existing version which is 5.0.77

any more ideas of how to over come this issue without uninstaling the current version
