Migrating from AIX 4.3.3 to 5.1 then to 5.2

We have a project going on right now where we are installing two P690's with AIX 5.1 then up-grading in due course to 5.2.  The question I have is there has been some concern that AIX 4.3.3 was much more stable that 5.1 or 5.2 .. if this is the case, what are your recommendations to make it more stable?  
They are definatly ploughing ahead with 5.1 so there is no way of getting out of it.

Also we are having the tills run on linux redhat 7.2, then transfering info to Redhat Linux Advance Server(x335), then relaying info up to the P690's (see above paragraph)... Is redhat 7.2 ---> advance server, compatable with uploading data to a P690 with AIX 5.1 on?

I've just seen an installation using AIX5.1 on p690
with DB2 7.2/ Websphere App. Server 4.x. They've been
running now for abt. 3 month and didn't encounter any
stability problems.

As for uploading files from Linux to AIX I'd recommend
using ssh. The installation I mentioned is using that
setup for accessing and transferring files to the p690
from all sorts of OSes.
