Upgrade a FC6 vServer


i have a new vServer with Fedora 6.
So now i want to update my box...

how can i get a full updated server??

i do this stepps:

yum install yum-fastestmirror
yum update << all installed
yum upgrade << no packages to update

is it a good idea to change the respository to a newer version?
can I get a secure and good server with Fedora v6?
if no, how can I upgrade to a newer version?

is my box now updated or is this only a lightupdate of an old fedora version?

ps: sorry for the very bad english

thanks to all

Fedora Core 6 is no longer supported. You got one update and that's all you'll ever get. There are no more updates posted for that release of Fedora. Best to consider updating to Fedora 11, waiting for Fedora 12 or think about CentOS for a server.
