Upgrade from fedora12 to fedora13?


I am using fedora12 and i was wondering whether i could upgrade my fedora12 to fedora13!!i dont want to start installing fedora13 all over again(boot it again from a cd),i want to just upgrade it directly from my fedora12.when you install fedora13 will all the files of fedora12 get replaced with fedora13 or will it just add additional files onto your fedora12?

Thanks a lot in advance

Kind Regards,
