Not a good idea.  I found out the hard way that you don't want to upgrade
between major versions, and since Fedora is supposed to be RHL 10 (though
from the traffic on this list, it looks like it has *way* more problems than
I ever remember seeing in RHL) you have three major versions (7 -> 8, 8-> 9,
9->10) to go through.

You'd be better off just starting clean with a new fedora install than
trying to upgrade.
