It should be rather straightforward to upgrade them to CentOS 5.3, you
should be able to do it with yum. If they're 64-bit boxes you may have
to remove some .i386 packages before the transaction goes through.

It is a little puzzling that when someone asks on a fedora ML how to
upgrade Fedora, the answer is often "upgrade to CentOS instead".

When the real question is how to get a stable machine to a more modern feature set, the answer is often CentOS. Fedora is better at being latest and greatest, and overall stability (ie. doesn't fall dead after updates) has improved. But it is not going to be as stable as CentOS, nor is it intended to be. If 'latest' is not required but 'newer' is, then that's the best advice to give.
