I highly recomend booting from media to do the base OS upgrade, not doing it 
on the live machine with yum. It works, but is more problematic then 
upgrading from anaconda then doing a yum update.

I upgraded several machines (though not running myth) from 5 to 7 directly 
with no problems.  My 6 to 7 upgrade of my Myth machine had no problems at 
all, the Fedora 6 RPMs even ran the first time the machine boot up as Fedora 
7, then 'yum update' brought down the new packages.
