It would be tricky, neigh on impossible to get just right. We've done
upgrades from RH8 and RH9 to AS3.0 and even those were a little
nerve-wracking (and in some cases are still a little out of whack).
Going from FC2/1 to AS3.0 would be even more difficult because a lot
of packages would need to be backed off rather than upgraded. It
would be an RPM nightmare.
A fresh install might be more work to begin with, but will be less
work over all, and would be a lot less error-prone.
