No, don't use a different root. Yes, RPM does almost all
the work in an install/upgrade (well, probably rpmlib linked
into the install program). Just rpm -Uhv * (or --freshen or
something like that).
As long as you have enough space on your partitions to
hold both the older and newer libs and bins, and the machine
isn't too active at the time, you should be OK.

A recent backup. You do have backups, right? :-)
