Deleting repos and then upgrading

G'day all, I've upgraded to Fedora Core 5 from FC4. It works well except it will not allow any upgrades. I suspect that the FC4 repos are blocking things. How do I clear the old repos and replace them with new ones? (In plain english please; I'm no expect).

I think that you mean updates not upgrades? You just upgraded to Fedora Core 5.
 
upgrade = move to the new version of Fedora
 
update = install new updated packages that are available for the current release
 
What method are you trying to do the upgrades with, yum, or the "RedHat Network (the update manager)?"
 
I have yet to upgrade to FC5, so I will look at this when I do so this weekend.
 
You do have an active internet connection established?
