The official method is to install the fedora package called "preupgrade". The gui will walk you thru the upgrade process.
When I upgraded from 8 to 9, I used an alternative command-line approach, which should work for you as well:
  1. completely upgrade f9;
  2. install the fedora-release and fedora-release-notes packages from the F10 repository. You may need to force it with rpm.
  3. run yum upgrade

As always, BACK EVERYTHING UP first. The upgrade process is not reversible, and if you don't like the results you will need to do a clean install.
