I have a client with 2x Virtual Machines (critical) on a VMWare 5.5 Server (the free version).  
They have upgraded to an additional processor, but now want to add more RAM.  The version of VMWare will not support this.
How do I safely upgrade to the Paid version of 5.5, or the Free version of 6.0, which I beleive handles more RAM?

Many Thanks.
