I dont believe there are any updates to AIX 4.2 or earlier available.

I would recommend doing an alt_disk_install. This may still be supported back to AIX 4.2. From a current AIX installation CD you woul load the alt_disk_install fileset specifically for AIX 4.2. This can then clone your system to a new disk, and then update that to AIX 5.3 via migration.

You have two bootable disks - your current system, and a 'test' migrated system that you can boot to - and shutdown if the migration is not what you intend/need.
