I did it in one step.  I used the CD installer, not a yum upgrade.  I made
a backup first, and then made a copy of my FC3 partition and made sure that
worked, and upgraded that.  The original FC3 is still there.  There have
been a few odd things, such as not having beagle installed (though
libbeagle is installed) and having all my old kernels deleted, even those
for booting the original FC3 partition, and I did clean up the various
.rpmnew files.
