I think that falls into the "it's a test reelase so don't be pissed if you have to re-install" arena. You should be able to upgrade individual packages with rpm -Uvh packagename. Or, if you are brave enough, try yum or apt. By the way, how is the latest test release shaping up?

You can just upgrade the software to test version 2. Put in the new disk(s), Anaconda will give you the option of either installing from scratch or upgrading from a previous version. If you don;t want to do this, what justin_p says will work just fine.
