Fedora, since about forever (If you don't believe me check the list
archives.), has recommended a fresh install versus upgrading an
existing system.  If you must upgrade use the DVD. The net-install CD
is usable; but, it does not allow addition of other repositories
(updates, rmpfusion, etc.) so you'll end up performing more updates
post-install.
