yum upgrade from rh9 to fc3

I'm using yum to upgrade Redhat 9 to Fedora Core 3.
I followed this instructions:

Now it nearly works, but this problems occurs:
[root@sublx nyk]# yum upgrade
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 3 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 3 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Finding obsoleted packages
Resolving dependencies
.conflict between udev and kernel
So HOW can I resolve this conflict?? Any ideas?

Somewhere I read that I should install the yum from FC3 (instead of the one from rh9). When I do whis, I get this error:
[root@sublx nyk]# yum
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 6, in ?
    import yummain
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 23, in ?
    import yum
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 27, in ?
    import output
  File "/usr/share/yum-cli/", line 27, in ?
    import yum.Errors
ImportError: No module named Errors
How can I fix THIS now?

I would not recommend an upgrade from RH9 to FC3. To many differences.
If you have the possibility, do a fresh install.

now I already started the update.... so I wanna finish it..

installing the 2.6 kernel rpm from fc3 doesn't work:
[root@sublx nyk]# rpm -ivh kernel-2.6.9-1.667.i686.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        module-init-tools is needed by kernel-2.6.9-1.667
        mkinitrd >= 4.1.15 is needed by kernel-2.6.9-1.667
        nfs-utils < 1.0.3 conflicts with kernel-2.6.9-1.667
        initscripts < 7.23 conflicts with kernel-2.6.9-1.667
that's why I want this to be handled by yum!

Trying to uninstall all old kernel 2.4, coz I found that somewhere in this forum as a tip!
I used this very long uninstall command line: (for all dependencies...)
[root@sublx nyk]# rpm -e kernel-2.4.20-20.9 tcpdump libpcap nfs-utils bind vconfig quota rp-pppoe pciutils ethereal-0.10.3-0.90.1 redhat-config-nfs-1.0.4-5 redhat-config-bind-1.9.0-13 XFree86-4.3.0-2.90.55 kernel-drm xinitrc-3.32-1 gnome-print-0.37-4 libgnomeprint22- lesstif-0.93.36-3 XFree86-tools-4.3.0-2.90.55 XFree86-twm-4.3.0-2.90.55 iptables-1.2.7a-2 lesstif-devel-0.93.36-3 libgnomeprintui22- gtkhtml-1.1.9-0.9.1 gdm- XFree86-xdm-4.3.0-2.90.55 gdm- XFree86-xdm-4.3.0-2.90.55 gnome-print-devel-0.37-4 gedit-2.2.0-1 lokkit-0.50-22 gtkhtml-devel-1.1.9-0.9.1 Guppi-devel-0.40.3-13 gal-devel-0.23-1 redhat-config-securitylevel-1.1.1-3 firstboot-1.0.5-11

SO now yum is not complaining anymore and makes the updates! now it's gonna work or break the system completely, I'll see...

I have had the same problem.

The solution I found is, upgrading to Fedora Core 2. After the restart i could upgrade to Fedora Core 3.
