    I used 'preupgrade' on F9 to reboot F10. It was a success, then 
F10-upgrade-test'g (+rpmfusion) for months. So I had no qualms when 
'preupgrade' asked if I had a wired connection to go to F11.  Prob 
was, 'sides my PEBKAC's, was aDSL, tho wired, is not. I needed to 
boot, have a mse an kybd, run 'pppoe-setup'.  A BZ or a PEBKAC ?

   Too late.... the next morn'n I re-installed the F9 kde live cd, 
d/l'd the F11 kde iso, burned it to CD, an up'd from that. IMO, 
'spite any PEBKAC on my part, 'preupgrade' should warn that 'wired 
connection' means w/o boot, aDSL, no mse/kybd, no PEBAC's, etc.  
Anyhow, F11+up's (+rpmfusion) now, no probs... smolt is on file ...
