Since Fedora 11 has reached its "end of life" and is no longer supported, I would imagine the easiest method is:

1. Back up documents to external drive
2. Download Fedora 13 installer CD
3. Install Fedora 13
4. Restore documents from backup

Oh no please tell if there is some easy way.

I did
Code:
wget ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Fedora/x86_64/os/Packages/fedora-release-*.noarch.rpm
got
Code:
fedora-release-13-1.noarch.rpm  fedora-release-notes-13-3.fc13.noarch.rpm
but an rpm -Uvh to above both gave
following error
Code:
rpm -Uvh  fedora-release-*
warning: fedora-release-13-1.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID e8e40fde
error: Failed dependencies:
        rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by fedora-release-13-1.noarch
        rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1 is needed by fedora-release-notes-13-3.fc13.noarch
I have checked this page

I just found this page, you could give preupgrade a try:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PreUpgrade

Quote:
Preupgrade provides an upgrade directly to the latest version of Fedora. It is not necessary to upgrade to intermediate versions. For example, it is possible to go from Fedora 11 to Fedora 13 directly.

Ok I tried as you said
yum install preupgrade
and then
Code:
 preupgrade-cli "Fedora 13"
got following error
Code:
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/__init__.py:203: UserWarning: Use .preconf instead of passing args to _getConfig
thanks for the link.
