Where did you 'get' the preupgrade.

The Fedora 9 that I started with Saturday came with preupgrade. I clean
installed Fedora 9 and did updates to current. When I ran preupgrade, in
Fedora 9, I was offered Fedora 10 or, by checking the box, Rawhide (to
be Fedora 11). Since the Fedora 10 was up-to-date it's preupgrade
offered 'nothing' except the check box that get 'Rawhide'.

There was a bug for some, IIRC, with preupgrade in Fedora 9 to Fedora
10. Some but not many.

Fedora would never 'force' you to use Rawhide. Although it kicks the
poo, IMO, out of Fedora 10. Many changes and improvements. I run Rawhide
all of the time anyway.
