Problem when upgrading from F12 to F13

Have to computer where I run Fedora. One is i686 (Pentium III 
(Coppermine) 800 MHz), 512 Mbytes memory and the other one is x86_64 
(AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4800+ 1800 MHz,  2 Gbytes 
memory. I had installed F12 on both of them. The /boot (ext4) is 200 
Mbytes on both computer. I decided to do preupgrade on both (F12 -> 
F13). Since the /boot is only 200 Mbytes I followed the instructions 
published on Fedora wiki "How to use PreUpgrade" 

The preupgrade of the i686 went fine. It only did do the first step so 
when I rebooted the computer I only needed to configure the network as 
stated in the wiki. When I tried to preupgrade the x86_64 using same 
method as with the i686 the /boot got full and the preupgrade program 

I have goggled and not found this problem. Have other same problem with 
x86_64 or is there other way to do this without resizing /boot?

PS The rest of the disk is LVM on both computers.
