If you're going back 3 versions, that'd be changelogs; and good luck, it'll bore the *** off you :-)
Maybe you should explain why you'd want to do that?

The reason that i would like to know the difference between these two is because i have a project that i am doing on comparing Fedora version (8) to Fedora version (5; therefore, i like to know the difference between their features and their abilities.

If you can change the proj to be successive versions (eg 5 to 6, or 7 to 8) you'll save yourself a lot of grief.
It also depends how deep you want to go. If its a proj, I guess you'll want to go deep to make it a reasonable paper.
