Quick question involving ext4/ext3 and dual boot

I currently have a dual boot system with Windows Vista and Fedora 10. I'm using GRUB. I have a Vista partition, a swap partition, and a root partition (Fedora 10 ext3). I want to upgrade to Fedora 11 but use ext4 this time instead of ext3. I understand that I should have a boot partition with ext3 and only use ext4 on my root partition. How should I go about doing this? Please give me all the details necessary to do this correctly.

Thank you.

When you say upgrade, do you mean a fresh install or upgrading your current F10 install to F11?
