After composing this question in emacs, I looked at "Similar Threads" which suggest I should do a complete install of Fedora 16 rather than trying to continue with what I have done already but I will ask my question anyway, just in case.
I have Fedora 12 and Windows on a dual boot PC, and want to uprgrade Linux to Fedora 16.
I followed the notes for preupgrade at: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_PreUpgrade
and successfully downloaded and verified Fedora 16, but then I am stuck after "Upgrade does not install upon reboot"
This is part of my Grub menu.lst file, I have omitted the early comments and the later entry for Windows. Following the listing is an account of my dilemma.
title GNU GRUB 2, (1.98)
title Upgrade to Fedora 16 (Verne)
kernel /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade ks=hd:UUID=9e124fe7-a7ba-4302-9ada-7bb852044162:/upgrade/ks.cfg stage2=http://mirror01.th.ifl.net/fedora/linux/releases/16/Fedora/i386/os/images/stage2.img
title Fedora (18.104.22.168-175.fc12.i686)

1) The notes for preupgrade at: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_use_PreUpgrade
say that I should "Identify the drive and partition of your Fedora /boot folder". I do not know how to do this.
2) If I boot up with "title GNU GRUB 2, (1.98)" I get into a command window for grub, and I have no idea how to go from there
3) If I boot up with "title Upgrade to Fedora 16 (Verne)"I get a curse type window with a dialogue box that asks first which drive I want to use, I answer "hard disk", then goes on to ask "What partition and drive on that partition holds an installation tree for Fedora?" Again I have no idea what this means.
I am lost in all three of these, can someone please help me to complete the installaton of Fedora 16?
Or must I do a re-install of 16?
