No painless way to do an update from FC1 to FC2.  Best bet is to do a
clean install, next best is to do an anaconda upgrade; however, if you
want to give it a shot check out threads like...

Particularly note the link to Seth Vidal's page.

To keep up to date (relatively) painlessly after getting FC2 running,
use the yum update service in cron - available in some versions of yum -
or add a crontab entry that does "yum -y update".  up2date and apt-get
are also options, but IMHO not as good as yum.
