Build a slave from another slave

Hi all,

I have a requirement to build a slave from another slave. The current environment is that we have one master and a couple of slaves. The current databases are 5.5 and are running on Solaris. We are in the process of migrating to Linux and perhaps upgrade to 5.6 in one shot. What would be the best way to do such task? I am leaning toward taking a mysqldump from one of the slaves. However I am not sure how I could take the binary log position from the master.

The master is doing row based replication and slaves don't have log-slave-updates enabled currently. It is a pretty simple replication setup.

Your input is appreciated.
