Upgrading Red Hat Linux via yum

Recently for a conference, we had a server that was stuck in the grand ole’ ages of FC2. Yes, that’s right. Fedora Core 2. I was rather amazed at the fact that anyone would still use Fedora Core anything, but FC2? Wow.
In any case, there was a desperate need to get this system back up-to-date in time for the conference a couple months down the road. There was a lot to be done, and a critical system breach was the last that we needed.
So a short hunt found us a tutorial on how to upgrade all the way to FC5 through yum. Brilliant. Does it work? Definitely. We’re on a FC5 machine now.
