How to do a Fedora 9 upgrade install?


I have been having the worst time trying to figure out how to make a Fedora 9 upgrade install work on my Dell Dimension 4600. The big problem is that it can't boot off the DVD drive I have in it and so I seem to be stuck trying to boot off CDs. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with that, but the instructions are circular and incomplete. The Fedora Live CD only wants to do full installs, which I am not prepared to do. Can anyone tell me how to proceed?

If you have a internet connection you can try YUM
But in my opinion a clean install is sometimes better
