To be honest, I haven't upgraded to Fedora yet, but Anaconda (the Fedora
installer) *should* recognize that you have an existing installation and
give you the option of either upgrading from an existing RedHat
installation or perform a new installation.
If you keep your home directories in a partition (e.g., a /usr/people
mountpoint) separate from the actual OS (e.g., /), then you could
probably get away with having Anaconda reformat the / partition without
touching the /usr/people partition and perform a fresh install on /.
