I had done over 40+ servers using yum. It works perfectly. But not too sure
about apt-get. Using yum, it will work fine as long as you do it step by
step. Haven't had any issues so far. 

Realworld reality sometimes means that the box is remote.

Now that you are midway, keep posting, maybe someone
can help you out :P

<but you choose the wrong way and unsupported path>
see the thread: [Centos] Upgrading from 3.4 to 4.0 beta X
and the answer from Johnny Hughes on  Sat, 22 Jan 2005 04:13:42 -0600

bottom line: don't use yum/apt to upgrade
boot on the centos-4 cd and "linux upgradeany"
