In my experience with the test releases, this has not been straight
forward. I advise you to back up /boot, do the install, copy back the
old vmlinuz, System.map,  config and initrd files. Then hand merge the
old grub.conf with the new grub.conf.
But more importantly, you must use a different root partition, i.e. "/"
, or you old system will become inoperable.
