I thought that yum supported the yum upgrade option to do a full OS
Could be wrong though.
PS. I'm running FC5 64Bit on one laptop and FC5 32Bit on another, and
they both work fine. I do belong to the re-install camp though.

Make sure you have uninstalled all kernel below 2.6.12 I think as yum
will not do the upgrade otherwise. I have done it and have had no
problems ( I did not have too many modified conf files).
