in principle you should be able to do this, but I wonder why you want to. Perhaps there is a better way to go about solving whatever problem you are having.

Perhaps it's an option to install a recent version of Fedora? Fedora 12 reached end-of-life almost 2 years ago. You won't be getting any updates for it anymore.
You'll also be getting a much more recent kernel.

Why would you like to upgrade an obsolete Fedora with an obsolete kernel?
