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 /.
