In this particular case, there shouldn't be any problems.  Just to be on
the safe side, you might want to shut down postmaster and make an
off-disk copy of the entire /var/lib/pgsql tree before proceeding.

RedHat 6.1 shipped with PostgreSQL 6.5.2, and 6.2 shipped with 6.5.3,
which are disk format compatible -- no dump/restore upgrade required.

Now, had you had RedHat 6.0 (shipped PostgreSQL 6.4.2), you would have
had problems.
