How do I update my Yellow dog Linux from v5.0 to v5.0.1 (for PS3)

Where do I get the Yellow Dog v5.0.1 update & how do I install it? This is for the Playstation 3, not a mac. I have v5.0 installed right now, but it doesn't support wifi and v5.0.1 is supposed to. I have no idea what I'm doing and I'm pretty much brand new to linux, so I need step by step instructions...

Up and Running!
Linux just runs, and runs, and runs. It is often the case that you don't need to update your local software too often, but in this fast paced interconnected world, it is nice to know you have the most current, fastest, secure software installed --so you want to remain current.

Ready to Update.
Fully manual method:
Use your Enhanced account or the public mirrors to manually FTP download the most current updates.

Semi-Automated method:
Use yum to make simple the process of updating installed applications and installing new software too.

Fully-Automated method:
Use Software Updater (pup, or "Package UPdater") found in your local YDL Menu --> Applications --> System Tools --> Software Management --> Software Updater. 'pup' automates the process of updating installed packages by comparing the versions of those packages installed on your live system and those available on-line. You are then given option to download and install all packages which have available, newer versions.
Just search how to update yellowdog in google and got me this. It should help you out !
