I was already running FC2T2 and doing upgrades
via yum as they were released, which
automatically brings you up to FC2T3.  I did have
a problem booting into FC2T2 after installing
from FC2T2 CD but got by that by doing an
interactive startup and not loading kudzu.  once
logged in I upgraded the default kernel to the
latest at the time and all has bee well since.

Yeah - so if you install FC2T2 and then just do a
yum check-update and then yum update, you should
be at FC2T3, no need to do a dist upgrade!
