Installing FCS3 upgrade

I have FCS2 and a new Mac Pro. I ordered FCS3 but it won't be here until next week. Probably... So I have been trying to find out if I need to install FCS2 to be able to install FCS3 or do I just need the serialnr from FCS2 when installing 3?
In that case, I'll wait. Otherwise I might as well work with FCS2 for the time being.

Also, I remember someone posting a very informative whitepaper about installing a new OS and FCS. Things like in what order to install updates, settings in the OS (disabling HDD sleeping, keyboard settings etc) It's been a long time since I did an install. Anyone point me to the -an- article?

You just need the license key from FCS 2 ready to type in when the installer asks for it.
