updating fedora core 3 kernel


I am very new to linux. Recently I have installed fedora core 3.

If I give the following command

rpm -q kernel
output of this command is : kernel-2.6.9-1.681_FC3

I want to upgrade this kernel to 2.6.10
in the following site ''
I found the following updates for i686.


My question is.... Can I update my kernel directly to kernel-2.6.10-1.760_FC3.i686.rpm?

do I need to update first to kernel-2.6.10-1.737_FC3.i686.rpm and then to Kerrnel-2.6.10-1.741_FC3.i686.rpm & after that to kernel-2.6.10-1.760_FC3.i686.rpm.
