First off, the point is that you should not "somehow install Fedora
11."  It's not supported, it shouldn't be used.  If you want to be a
new user, the normal course of action is to download "whatever is
current" and that's Fedora 13.  Regardless, yes, you can go directly
from Fedora 11 to Fedora 13 using preupgrade[1].

Secondly, the other reason (aside from running unsupported software
that's liable to get you rooted over the Internet) is to avoid long
and tiresome threads on the support forum where everyone is telling
you "don't run Fedora 11, it's not supported."
