You don't need to change anything.  'yum update' will update things,
within a given major release (eg 4.x or 5.x).  It will happen
automagically.  Going from 4.x to 5.x requires using the installer (eg
the ISOs and a reboot with the installer CD/DVD). I don't know if it is
possible (or advisable) to do a major release update with yum.
