Moving from RH to FC1

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 

Good luck!
