Fedora Core update

I have obtained the 4 discs to update from fc1 to fc3. However the machine does not boot from fc3, the bios is ok beacuse I can boot from fc1.
I have read that I have to burn the discs on the machine that I intend to update.
I do not understand the md5 check method as I do not know to change to the floppy disc drive using terminal.
Can you move from fc1 to fc3 without going via fc2?
Could someone decribe a simple procedure to use the discs I have created.
Kind regards

Technically, your disc one should be bootable and you should have no trouble booting and updating. Since you don't understand the md5sum procedure, can you use the "disc check" function native to Fedora? I'd start there..

Should I update or will I be causing myself other issues such as hardware problems, when I had a great surprise that although my isp said it did not support linux on the broaddand modem - here I am using it!
many thanks
