Hey,

I have a box currently running FC2, running an FTP server. If I pop in an FC3 disk, can I upgrade non-destructively, or will it require everything being deleted and a fresh install being done?

I am a fan for (no matter what OS you are using) doing clean installs. If you have a /home you can keep all your settings and still have a brand new OS rather than an upgraded one (there always seem to be some issues!).

If you are doing an upgrade (available in the install menu), first of all back up any configuration files you might need to your /home or some other device. Just restore them back once the upgrade has been done and all should be back to normal.
