Why?

In my view, by far the best option is to install F-12 on another partition,
if you have one.
(With the enormous disks in use today, this must be the usual situation.)

And in my experience, the easiest way to install is to run the KDE Live CD
(or probably the other Live CD), perhaps on a memory stick,
and then click on the "Install on Hard Disk"
(and choose "Custom Install" to avoid the crazy default installation).

The trouble with preupgrade is that if it doesn't work, 
which is all too likely, it leaves the machine in a halfway state.
