Up Grading Virtual Box from EL5


I have installed an EL5, is it possible to up grade Virtual Box from this particula type:


All distributions (built on EL5 and therefore do not require recent system libraries) i386 | AMD64

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads

or must delete and install the new/latest version?

Thanking for your replies

If it were my machine I would install the latest version of VBox.

I've been using the EL5 download for a long time. It installs it into /opt/VirtualBox. When you want to upgrade or downgrade just install the version you want, the installer will uninstall the previous one first.
