I was only able to use "preupgrade" to go from F9 to F11.  For whatever
reason, F9 to F12 did not work for me.  Some time in the near future, I
will probably try F11 to F14....

Edit the files:

	/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
	/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo

?

But, these files should be a part of your fedora-release rpm....
What is the exact version of the fedora-release RPM that you have installed?

I have commented out the lines beginning with "baseurl=" and uncommented
the lines beginning with "mirrorlist="

My plans are to upgrade my F10 server to F13 sometime next month using
pre-upgrade.
