You have proprietary software installed in FC3 that you want to work in
the new OS too?

Then F9 and F10 might be too new to be able to upgrade such an old
installation.

I wouldn't update to a new Fedora, if you have proprietary software that
you still want to use. The libraries and so on may not be compatible
with the old software.

I suggest you update to CentOS 4 ( http://centos.org/ ), which is
largely based on Fedora Core 3 so the update should be quite painless.
You should even be able to do the update with yum.
