I can't do the upgrade because the Anaconda installer seems to install the wrong video driver (this computer is at least 5 years old) and I can't interact with the graphical install.  I can boot up with Fedora 2.4 and get to the Gnome interface just fine.

Boot the F10 install DVD, and when the menu comes up, put the cursor
on "Install", and hit tab to edit the boot options.  Add "text" to the
boot options, and hit enter.  That's it - the installer will come up
without X.
