not a silly question at all

don't even try

Assuming that you have reasonably fast bandwidth, the way to do it is to
do 'stepped' upgrades 6 => 7 => 8 => 9 => 10 (you can use Yum to get you
to F9 and then Pre Upgrade for 9 to 10 if you want).

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpgradeFaq

There are notes to deal with each step
