Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I guess it will be about the same as upgrading from like RH9 to FC1 or from FC1 to FC2.
In basics you should update the yum and fedora-release to the newest version and afterwards perform a yum update (assuming you are using yum, but it will provide the possibility).
Some version upgrades require alteration of the packages before commencing, though. Like some obselete packages that need to be removed, or some prerequisits that need to be met before commencing...
I tend to wait a couple of days / weeks until people have figured out the clue to do the upgrade.
Although I installed FC4 on an older PC i have spare, I will not be updating mymain pc from FC3 to FC4 for a few months yet, let them work out all the bugs, the FC4 as it mentions is like in beta mode if u require ure pc to be running 24/7 then its not the release for u just YET..
The race to have the newest software on the first day of the release seems to me to be for windows users...
as it has been mentioned in a previuos thread, sit back, kick up your heals, grab a bear n smoke and wait till YUM the yellow dog updates for u
Ugh... I tried doing the yum mentod from FC2 to FC3... technically, it worked. Kinda. But in doing so, it didn't get everything up to where it should. I haven't figured out exactly what of the mess did and did not upgrade, but if I take a look at my buddies fresh FC3 install and compare it to my FC2-FC3 upgraded install, there are quite a few differences. I wouldn't have really noticed if it hadn't messed up my X stuff... including desktop. My desktop is no longer pretty but it's still functional.
I don't know what I did wrong at the time but am definitely trying to find a better way or a better distribution.
At work, I help people move between systems. Upgrades, migrations etc. And a large part of each project is planning so there is a smooth transition. We've built roadmaps and guide our customers through the process. Given Linux distro's change on such a frequent basis... we should, as a community, really put more thought into moving from a-to-b-to-c. A roadmap and upgrade is essential. Where is it for Fedora?
