Generally Red Hat (and Fedora) will only provide minor version updates and backport security fixes for each release. You can only expect major version updates in new releases

you can NOT do that you can NOT install a fedora 13 kernel on fedora 11
you can NOT install a fedora 13 network manager on fedora 11

that will ONLY KILL your computer

install fedora 13
