Then you need to upgrade from FC2 -> FC3 -> FC4 -> FC5.

Also, don't do "yum upgrade", use anaconda, booting from a CD instead.  Using 
"yum upgrade" there are 20 some odd "corner cases" and such that are not 
handled (things about the changes between FC4 -> FC5.  Anaconda knows these 
things and gets things right.

I had excellent results upgrading my FC4 notebook to FC5 using Anaconda.
