- first i would recommend reading the handbook about buildworld

- if this are production machines, i would use tag=RELENG_4_8
  so you are only updating to the latest security branch.
  developers at freebsd.org are currently preparing to release 4.9
  so -stable could be shaky.

- in a production environment, always try the update on a test maschine (which
  should be identical to the prod machines)

- you could try updating the servers over nfs, see the handbook mentioned above.

if you read the documentation really carefully, there is nothing to be afraid of.
i am updating my servers since 3 years via cvsup/installworld and never had a 
problem (thanks to the freebsd team :-).
