I recently upgraded from Fedora 9 to 12, but it involved making a backup of
the MythTV database and relevant files, then formatting the boot disk with
the Fedora 12 installer.  The primary reason for a clean installation was
that I wanted to switch from the 32-bit release to the 64-bit release.
 Also, an incremental upgrade (9->10, 10->11, 11->12) would take a very long
time and is very prone to error.

I recommend a clean install.  Oh, and be careful that you don't accidentally
erase your recordings in the process :)
