You can also run "rpm -qa | grep kernel" and see which kernels you have installed. At least one should have fc17 in it.
I just put the cd in, then restarted my system. after that I got an option fresh install or upgrade...I selected upgrade...after that it asked for new settings for boot loader or no change...I selected no change....
this is what I found when entered the command rpm -ga | grep kernel
I think you are right. I need to upgrade my yum. let me try it out.
