upgrading rh9/xp dual boot to fedora

I'm considering upgrading my rh9 installation to fedora. Currently the system dual boots rh9 or xp. The boot sequence is windoze boot loader to grub, grub to linux (convoluted I know, but that's how it is, many problems before with kernel upgrades making the installations inaccessible)

I've read about a lot of dual boot problems with fedora, does mainly affect new installations of fedora or upgrades from rh9?

How is the upgrade process? Will I have to manually correct all sorts of things (I don't have a lot of time, so I can live with rh9 if that's the case)?

The machine is on a home network and also connects to a windoze machine using samba. RH9 is my main usage operating system, somewhat critical, any advice appreciated.

I have heard reports that the problems with core 2 dual booting with XP has been problematic for some users (both upgrade and orginal installs). I am running core 1 and I really feel little need to consider upgrading at the moment, and I will deffinitly hold off until I get a warm and fuzzy that this problem has been well worked out.
