[OpenAFS] Upgrade & Migration

I would like to upgrade my openafs system to 1.4.0, and the to a new OS
at the same time.  So here's what I've got currently:
3 servers running openafs 1.2.13 on a linux 2.4.X kernel without
kerberos.  All the database are replicate, and all three servers each
have /vicepa which is physically located on an external SCSI RAID box.
I would like the new system to run 1.4.0 and run the latest 2.6.X
kernel.  My question is what would be the best way to migrate the
systems?  Should I do it one at a time, and if so would the 1.4 binaries
from the new system work on the others(which will most likely be built
with a different version of GCC and glibc), or should I do all three at
the same time?  Are there any documents on migrating the databases to a
new system?  Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
