I installed Gentoo 2004.3 about two months ago. Now that 2005.0 is out I have a question about updating. Is it neccessary to do a full install to get to 2005.0 or will my machine get updated to the same level just by staying up to date through running "emerge --sync" and then doing the "emrge --update" ?

Thanks in advance,
Scott

nop do not re-install from 2005.0

Think about it, what did you do when you installed with 2004.# ? you did a emerge --synv afterwards so your system would be updated, and if you did a stage 1/2 you would have emerge sync to get teh latest tree from the net.
This is one of the many nice things abt gentoo
