  PreUpgrade is an application users run on an existing Fedora 7 or 8 installation, that resolves and downloads packages required to upgrade to Fedora 9. While PreUpgrade downloads the necessary packages, users are free to continue using their systems.
  To use PreUpgrade to upgrade Fedora 7 or 8 to Fedora 9:
+  1. Back up all important data before upgrading.
   1. Run the {{{yum update}}} command as root to make sure all packages are updated to their latest versions.
   1. Run the {{{yum install preupgrade}}} command as root to install PreUpgrade.
   1. Run the {{{preupgrade}}} command as root to start the PreUpgrade application.
   1. Select ''Fedora 9 (Sulphur)'' on the ''Choose desired release'' screen, and click the ''Apply'' button.
   1. When all of the packages have downloaded, reboot your system to start the Fedora 9 installer.
