Default Noob: Updating To OpenBSD-Stable.

I just installed OPBSD-4.4. (Very Nice ) and I'm trying to learn
the basics. From what I've read stable is the road I want to travel.
After reading on openbsd101 and the faq etc could you tell me if I'm
following the correct steps to update Release to Stable?

I created a sup file and I'm downloading the source now with the
following with csup configuration

# Defaults that apply to all the collections
*default release=cvs
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default umask=002
*default host=anoncvs4.usa.openbsd.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default tag=OPENBSD_4_4

# If your network link is a T1 or faster, comment out the following
line. # *default compress


From what I gather, after the source is downloaded and /usr/src is
populated etc I then rebuild the KERNEL using these options
cd /usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/conf/
config GENERIC

cd ../compile/GENERIC
make clean
make depend
make install
Reboot to test the kernel

Rebuild and update Userland following these options..

rm -rf /usr/obj/*
cd /usr/src
make obj
cd /usr/src/etc && env DESTDIR=/ make distrib-dirs
cd /usr/src
make build

Is this the correct way?

Thanks in advance..
