    Yes, unless you want to get hacked.

    Just upload the entire distro, it's easier and faster. (If you have broadband, anyway.)

    Delete the following folders:

    /wp-includes
    /wp-admin

    Delete all the *.php files from the root of WP EXCEPT wp-config.php.
    Do not delete .htaccess or robots.txt if you have either of those.

    Don't forget to disable those plugins (or just cheat like I do and rename the /plugins folder temporarily).

    Then upload the fresh files from the 2.5.1 distro. Navigate to /wp-admin/upgrade.php and you're golden.
