Preupgrade F12->F13 error

Hi all,

I want to upgrade to Fedora F12->F13 but the first time I tried I had 
this error:

Not enough space in /boot/upgrade to download install.img.

My boot partition is 190MB and AFAIK that is not unusual so I tried 
tidying up a bit, uninstalling all except unused kernels, and now have 
about 145MB for whatever needs to be downloaded in /boot/upgrade. But I 
get the same error.

I can fix this by using wired instead of wireless networking but I want 
to know for planning purposes (next time I create a boot partition) how 
much space is required?

How do I increase size the boot partition?
My partition:

Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
                       226G   60G  155G  28% /
tmpfs                1002M  124K 1001M   1% /dev/shm
/dev/sda1             190M   39M  142M  22% /boot

Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot,
