I am looking for any advice or hints on the process of upgrading a PIX520 (with a PIX520 failover) from version 6.0.1 to 6.2.2

I have a document from CCO that lays out the step by step process, but I just wanted to post a question here to try and get some advice from someone that has done it before.

The steps are pretty simple. Here's a jist of it.

Once you download the 6.2.2 file from the Software Center,

--Copy the PIX Firewall binary image (pixnnn.bin) to the root directory of the TFTP server.

--From the PIX prompt, issue the copy tftp flash command.

--Enter the remote host IP address.

--Enter the PIX binary filename (has the pixnnn.bin name format).

--Type yes
