like A Yerenkow said, that is your only real option. there was a guide  
on pcbsd forums somewhere
by terryP to manually upgrade, but it is a bit complicated and takes  
much more time. i couldn't do it myself, but if
you are good at this computer stuff, don't want to start fresh, and  
like to learn, give it a go. i don't know terryP,
but seems he knows his  bsd and knows what he is doing.
roughly you need to upgrade 6.3 to freebsd 7, delete all 6.3 packages,  
install 7 packages, and turn freebsd
into pcbsd from svn.
otherwise, like the man said , backup and install fresh.
