FC1 is "legacy" now, meaning that you'd be hard-pressed to find support
for it. You can still find it at (I think) http://legacy.fedora.org. New
Fedora releases happen every six months or so; you can find that at the
Fedora home page. You can simply download a newer release with
Bittorrent. Conventional wisdom seems to be that you should perform a
clean install with each release instead of upgrading, but I've had no
problems with my system, upgrading from FC1 to FC2 and then to FC3.
