Neither have I, but I'd just go straight for FC2 with an anaconda
upgrade.  First check for any known problems with your hardware/
configuration (i.e W2K dual/boot, XFree86/xorg upgrade problems, NVidia
drivers, ...).

If you have 3rd party packages installed you may have to accept that
there will be dependency problems that anaconda can't resolve.  After
the upgrade (hopefully) boot up and run

rpm -qa --qf "%{INSTALLTIME} %{NAME} %{VERSION} %{RELEASE}\n" | sort -r >RPMS_by_Install_Time

Inspect the output file.  Anything after basesystem predates the upgrade
and is suspect.  Get updates from the same sources, remove, or otherwise
resolve, or live with it if it still works.  Running apt-get or yum
upgrade with FC2 versions of all your favorite repositories will take
care of many of the problems.
