Sadly not... To my knowledge Red Hat (or the Fedora project) have never 
released intermediate versions of the operating system ISOs to "inline" all 
the updated packages to date. The latest ISOs are dated 3rd November 2004 - 
see http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/3/i386/iso/

The FC3 updates on the JISC Mirror total 1.27Gb (excluding the "debug" 
subdirectory), though that does include duplicate copies of a few packages 
that have been updated more than once since the original release.
