In the thread I mentioned, Jeremy Katz suggested that rolling updates
may be less problematic.  Where you start with FC1 then incrementally go
forward tracking rawhide through time.  I did this on my laptop and it
more or less worked fine.  At FC2T3 I installed from CD just to clean
out any junk and make sure the installer worked.  (The installer didn't
work with the two previous tests on my laptop...)  But a normal "yum
update" from the standard FC1 to FC2 may break badly on some systems.

It's technically impossible in some important upgrade scenarios.  Not to
say it will never work.  They're just saying it will never work in every
conceivable situation.  If you want to ensure your system actually
functions after upgrade then reboot to an installation CD and perform
the upgrade.
