Does yum update from Fedora 3 to Fedora 4?

I'm running Fedora Core 3, and every once in a while I remotely log in and type "yum -y update" just to make sure I have the latest versions of everything. I don't even pay attention to what it's updating. (okay, I really oughta pay attention, and learn what all those programs do, but I usually have other things on my mind)

So, if I want to get the latest version of Fedora Core, do I need to download the distro? Or does yum take care of it for me?
