I've never experienced problems with that neither but if you want to
follow the recommendation, first upgrade to 4.1:

"2.4.16. Upgrading MySQL

As a general rule, we recommend that when upgrading from one release series 
to another, you should go to the next series rather than skipping a series. 
For example, if you currently are running MySQL 3.23 and wish to upgrade to 
a newer series, upgrade to MySQL 4.0 rather than to 4.1 or 5.0."
