Can we migrate two of our three Domino servers?

Hi. We are running three Domino servers (two of them running 5.0.11 and one running 5.0.6). The one running 5.0.6 is our fax server. The company wants us the migrate to R6. Is there any way we can do the migration safely with different server versions, namely 5.0.11 and 5.0.6, as someone was telling me that unless we do something about the 5.0.6 (fax) server, we cannot perform migration.

Also which version of R6 do we go for? I think the latest is R6.0.2 CF1. Are there any issues with this server version? Thanks in advance.
The only issue you may have is if your fax software is compatible with D6. If it is, then migrating servers one at a time will be fine. 6.0.2cf1 is very stable. Obviously you should test everything you use Notes/Domino for, including the fax capability, prior to migrating.
