Upgrading Magento

Hi guys,

I am currently running Magento, I need to upgrade to at least 1.6 to be able to use certain plug ins I need.

I have no idea how to accomplish this, you guys have been great help in the past so I thought I'd ask the experts.

I have read through the following page ( http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/upgrading_magento )

but it didn't make much sense, perhaps some one knows of a free job board where I can post get some one else to do it for a fee.

Is this a big job to carry out?
