Here's some steps:

Optionally, start with a 'yum clean all' first just to be sure there's 
no cruft, and plenty of room.

Then you should download and apply at least the rpm rpm, yum rpm and 
fedora-release rpm by hand.  Download them from the branch of the 
release you are upgrading to.

Then do `yum upgrade` (not `yum update`!)

This page has very useful info on upgrading from RH 7.2 through to FC3:
