yum fc1 to fc4


I have a laptop with a hardware problem. It only runs on battery power. So, I need to find a way to update from FC1 to FC4 without using using the install CDs. Is it possible to use yum?

i think with yum you only can upgrade to the next version, apt can upgrade to the latest version, but the better way is to download the fedora core 4 rpm iso's and install them from the hard disk with the upgrade option how to do read this link for apt read this link .

Some instructions for the unsupported and risky Yum upgrading methods are here:

But you really should consider using the install CDs because that works much better.
