Most third party packagers don't provide repos for test releases. You may find that some will start to spring up just before or after the official release.

Cheers! I thought as much to be honest. Would it be possible to upgrade to the final release via yum?? Or would a clean install be the better route??
I also heard that the new installer is going to be able to use yum repos during the install?

Yes, you can upgrade to the stable version using yum. All you would need to do is download the fedora-release rpm from FC5, install that then yum upgrade. I am not sure if the installer will be using YUM repos, but the rescue cd has been greatyl improved and its now easier to do network installations.
