Upgrade to Virtualbox 2.0.6

I'm currently using Virtualbox 2.0.4. The package was build using the scripts.

Now I would like to update to the latest Virtualbox 2.0.6. I figure I can just alter the 2.0.4 script and build the package, but what about the update itself? Is there anything I need to take special care of, before updating Virtualbox?

I'm running Virtualbox on Slackware 12.1 with multiple guests, ranging from Slackware 11 over OpenBSD to Windows XP.

Any and all advice are more than welcome.

I upgraded to 2.0.6 yesterday, but I'm not using the buildscripts. VBox installer works fairly well and menu entries, rc scripts etc. are created automatically. There was nothing extra required for the update.

The upgrade went completely smooth. I altered the 2.0.4 slackbuild scripts to match 2.0.6, and everything went without a hitch.

VB is a grand piece of software!
