I think people are confused about a LiveCD installation.  Once you 
tell the LiveCD to install to the hard disk, it becomes a regular 
installation on the hard disk.  You can then upgrade that at a future 
date just like any other install, using anaconda to upgrade the system 
via new media, HTTP, FTP, NFS, etc.  Of course, you can also try to 
"yum upgrade" it, which isn't recommended.
