IMO, Forrest's suggestion is best. Don't do anything - just boot from the
Fedora CD and choose Install rather than upgrade, install it on your existing
1GB "linux" partition.
For a beginner, this is the best way to go. Even for experts, "Upgrade" often
means "Break my computer".
Also if you have anything even mildly important on there, *back it up before you
