Fixpak 5 directly to fixpak 14 - possible?

I'm currently on DB2 LUW v8.1 fixpack 5
DB21085I Instance "xxxx" uses "32" bits and DB2 code
release "SQL08015" with level identifier "02060106".
Informational tokens are "DB2 v8.1.0.48", "s040212", "MI00069",
and FixPak "5". Product is installed at "/opt/IBM/db2/V8.1".

I wish to upgrade to v8.1 fixpak 14 (aka v8.2 fixpak 7), the
Linux 2.4 kernel version.

Can I do this directly? Or do I have to goto v8.1 fixpak 7
(ie v8.2 GA) first, then onto fixpak 14?
The doc says:
"DB2 clients can connect to DB2 servers two releases later or
one release earlier than the client’s release level, as well as
to servers at the same release level."

What is a release level? A fixpak? Or a next higher number
after the version decimal point?
Also, the doc says I can't uninstall the fixpack on Linux.
Can't I just first backup all files in
my DB directories (SMS/DMS)
my instance owner home dir
and restore them if need be?

Any general advice on such a big fixpak move, or the 8.1 -8.2

Any help appreciatred. TIA

You can go straight to FP14.
A fixpack does not count as a release.
DB2 V7 and DB2 9 are 2 releases apart.
