I use Fedora on my work laptop (a Lenovo T61p) and my four workstations for FMRI and DTI heavy lifting at work and four test machines for server applications I write for DICOM streaming, which production servers run mostly on CENTOS (fasing out RHE 5). The Fedora machines all have 2 partitions for the OS, the old for fallback and the new one. I upgrade by installing a standard DVD (mostly an half hour installing) and I have written a couple scripts that generate a list of additional installed rpms on a well working previous install (Fedora 11) and then automatic upgrade the new OS with the listed rpms. . I do this for one 64bit and one 32bit install, clone the partitions and install the rest of the machines with them.

Upgrading cost me 4 hours for 10 computers top.
