Upgrading to 7.0 with a Gig card

I am trying to upgrade my PIX 535 from 6.3.4 to 7.0.4. I have PDM installed so I am told that I need to upgrade in monitor mode. That takes me to my problem. I have gig Ethernet cards installed in slot 0 and 1 (outside and inside). The documentation says that I can’t initialize a gig Ethernet card in monitor mode. I also read some documentation that says I have to use a FE card in the 32 bit slots 4-8. But they don’t seem to be options in monitor mode. How am I supposed to upgrade in this config? I do have a 4 port Ethernet card installed in slot 2 and two single Ethernet cards in slots 4 and 5. If I move cards around, will that mess up my config? I don’t want to have to format the flash and re-install the OS and config.
