want to upgrade from Fedora Core 3 in an easier way than doing the
procedure that is required for the first install you do, downloading
all of the ISOs, then burning them to discs, and then use Disk Druid
to erase partition (and all of my lovely data) and recreate it.
I hear of alot of people saying that they upgraded, and am curious
about how it is done.

Upgrading's fairly easy. When you install, FC4's installer will detect
a prior installation on your computer, and ask you if you want to
upgrade or reformat and do a clean install. when you pick update, it
will copy only those packages needed to make FC3 turn into FC4,
retaining all your data without erasing :)
If you don't want to burn to CD, you can do a hard drive install,
although I'm not sure how that would be done, I've never done a HD
install before, and I'd like to do that for upgrading to FC4 so I don't
have to waste precious CD-Rs.
Can anyone enlighten me on how I'd do a hard drive install/upgrade to
FC4 when it comes out?
