Don't think of 5.0 and 5.1 as different distros. They are the same distro.
Think of it as a bunch of non-critical updates that were withheld from the
regular update cycle, tested as a set, and released all at once with a new
installer image. It is just an update, analogous to a Windows service pack.
Think of RHEL5 as the distro, evolving through time, and 5.1 as a well-tested
snapshot of RHEL5 at a particular point in time.
A regular 'yum update' will bring in all of the new updates. There is no need
to reinstall the OS.
