The servers I manage are very low traffic/load.. and I have been moving
them to 5.3.. BUT depending on your scenario the advise may change.
If you tell more of your plans others can probably give better advise.
I think either 4.X Stable or 5.X Stable are good choices, however I find
that given the difference in them that the sooner one starts to use 5.X
the better.. but that's just me..
By difference I mean minute details like configuration files, etc.. It
didn't take me long when moved to 5.3 to find what I needed, but it was
different from the 4.x.. example.. Some ports now require that you put a
flag in /etc/rc.conf.. that little detail could send you on a 15 to 30
minute trip down the google lane.. while you discover that you should have
looked at /usr/ports/UPGRADES. :-)... which is also new to 5.X
