Upgrading from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora Core 3

Upgraded my linux machine from Fedora Core 2 (Tettnang) to Fedora Core 3 (Heidelberg). Here are the steps I followed.
[1] Downloaded the ISO images (FC3-i386-disc1,2,3,4.iso) from ftp://sunsite.utk.edu/pub/linux/fedora/3/i386/iso/ .The download took about 10 mins each for each CD image. Maybe it was faster because I was in my office and downloading from the UTK network. So, maybe it was like downloading over the LAN.
Note: For faster downloads, choose the mirror nearest to you: http://fedora.redhat.com/download/mirrors.html
[2] Created the CDs from the ISO images using Roxio Easy CD Creator
[3] Inserted CD1 into my Linux machine and rebooted it.
[4] Chose the “Upgrade” option after reboot.
The total process took about 2 hours. Everything seems to be working well.
Note: Make sure you have all 4 CDs before you start the upgrade process.
