According to this doc, you can directly upgrade from 4.02a to 4.2(3).

You can download the 4.2 upgrade file from CCO

For phones to register with Callmanager, you need to setup phones with a static TFTP address or if using DHCP, your DHCP scope should have a custom option 150 defined with the ip address of TFTP server. The TFTP server should be one of the callmanager servers running TFTp service. (typically the Publisher itself)

You will need to install BARS (Backup and Restore System). Its either available on your 4.2 discs set or you can download it from CCO. (The link i pasted before should help). Using BARs you have to dump the database into a tar file and move it off the server. I usually take a system backup using Ghost, Acronis etc just in case.
