Yes, you would need quite a lot of free disk space to do an upgrade.
It's not wise to "yum upgrade" from FC1 to FC2 anyway as I believe the
document you were reading mentions.  Anaconda really needs to run to
properly upgrade even though it may seem to work well enough using yum.

You can't really boot the CD from GRUB.  But, as someone else suggested,
you can copy the FC2 installer files to /boot then boot the installer
from the hard disk.

This will work provided FC2 detects your USB CD-ROM drive:
