yum upgrade 

That upgrades/removes obsoletes ... (sometimes packages obsolete other
packages).

Since you want to upgrade to the latest release ... that is a little bit
different :)

You can just download the same 3 programs I told you ... but the newest
versions ... from here (yum, centos-release, centos-yumcache):

http://mirror.centos.org/centos/3/os/i386/RedHat/RPMS/

You still want to add the:

exclude=kernel-2.4*

(that is better than kernel* as it blocks less stuff and only the
kernels)

You don't need to change the paths or remark out any of the standard
repos.
