sorry i dont come with your answers! lol
if your upgrading, might as well get FC5, it just came out!
i would think you could simply modify the repositories that yum looks in, and set them to be from the FC5 series, then update/upgrade the entire system.. that should bring you to basically FC5.

anyways, my real motive for posting is that i noticed your from windsor! me too! what school did you go to if you dont mind me asking?
