Can't install, can't upgrade from 3.0.3 to 4.1 or 4.2

Greetings!  I am trying to get RH 4.2 running on a non-PCI 486 system.

I have installed 3.0.3 from the "official" disk 1 direct from the CD (Sony
31a) and can mount the CD successfully.

I have tried unsuccessfully to do a direct install of either 4.1 or 4.2, and
cannot get the install program to work either from the CD or from a boot
disk, because the first thing the  boot process does is to check for PCI
devices, and that hangs the system.

I would upgrade a package at a time from the files on the 4.2 CD, but the
version of RPM installed with the 3.0.3 version refuses to handle packages
unless their version numbers are <2.  So it seems I need the new RPM version
in order to install the new RPM version.

So, I have two questions:

(1) is there a boot image available that will enable me to install the 4.2
package from the CD, and if so, where can I get it?

(2) is there a downloadable version of RPM that can handle the newer
packages, and that I can get running without having to use RPM to do it?

Any suggestions or pointers are most welcome!  I have read through all of
the available sources of help and information already, and have not been
able to find anything that could get me past my impasse.
