I doubt there is a supported upgrade path.

To get to Fedora Core 2, the safest path would be to back up your data,
do a clean install of FC2, then restore your data.

You could possibly "yum update" your Aurox system to FC2 rpms, but I
would imagine there would still be many issues you would need to fix by
