In short, the easiest way to go is to get a CD set and upgrade from
that. There are significant differences between FC1 and FC5 that make it
difficult (but not impossible) to do the upgrade via yum. 

To upgrade via yum you will need to manually upgrade a small pile of
files then manually migrates some stuff that won't happen without
anaconda and then you can upgrade with yum. 



for some notes on how to do this. Be aware that any database you have
will most likely need to be saved using its dump process and restored
after the upgrade. In fact, it is a good practice to do a database dump
before any upgrade of the database system(s) for both mysql and
postgresql. Postgresql has a general rule that the rpm upgrade path
ignores of requiring a dump->upgrade->restore cycle.
