Upgrade from potato to debian

Hello all,
I am trying to get my system upgraded from potato to woody. The servers in question are production servers. I have mysql databases and more such programs running off of these servers. How would a dselect upgrade affect all of this? Does an upgrade affect Apache web service? I will take a complete back-up of my systems. I will use tar for this purpose.

I have been reading the mailing lists for related problems and the upgrade manual as well (http://www.debian.org/releases/woody/i386/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html). However, at the end of this document it says that the kernel is not upgraded to a newer version? How would it affect if I don't upgrade the kernel to 2.4 at all?

I would love get some pointers from all you gurus before I dive into upgrading my systems.
Many thanks,
