  i've never tried a preupgrade before, maybe i'll give that a shot.
i just ran it and the only choice i'm given for available fedora
releases is rawhide, so i figure that's the ticket, right?

  drat, i just got this:

"Not enough space in /boot/upgrade to download install.img.

The installer can download this file once it starts, but this requires
a wired network connection during installation.

If you do not have a wired network connection available, you should
quit now."

  since i'm not wired at the moment, i should bail?
