It *did* tell me that I could continue if I had a wired network
connection. I do have, so I continued; and then after finally
downloading all the packages (much time) and rebooting it apparently
couldn't find the driver for my network card. Bother.

Cancelling at that point and rebooting did bring back my F12, so that
was good. But I've cleaned out boot as much as I think possible and
still there's not enough space.

I thought this was done to death during the last upgrade cycle. And I
think I have a non-upgraded install of F12 on this machine, yet /boot
is still too small for preupgrade to work! Ack!

Will this work if I go buy a generic network card? Apparently the one
already installed (and that I'm using now) is no good for the

It told me the same thing. At that point, I booted from a live CD,
installed gparted and resized the boot partition to take 500M (took
space from swap, which was 2G). Then preupgrade succeeded perfectly and
I'm running F13 right now.
Since the packages are already downloaded, you should be able to retry
without having to get them again.
You could always download the full DVD, and run the upgrade from the DVD.
