Try "yum --help" and "man yum" which have a lot of info. Also the 
CentOS docs on http://www.centos.org/docs/ has yum docs.

So if you for just install CentOS 4.7 from the ServerCD and do

# yum check-update

it will give you a list of packages to be updated, which you can
do by

# yum update

and then say yes or no. Welcome to CentOS BTW.
