Question Re: Upgrade to F16 using preupgrade fails..

.. I think.

I have attempted to use both preupgrade and upgrading from a dvd, both act exactly the same.

It brings up the Anaconda Installer, I expect that. I do the hostname, the timezone, and password, OK.

I then get to the 'Which type of installation would you like?" question. It starts making me nervous as I don't don't see an "upgrade" option. I have tried both "Use All Space" & "Replace Existing..." on different attempts.

Then I get to the next step and it tells me "The install target device will be reformatted..."

I can't bring myself to go on without further assurance. Am I on the correct path?

It may make a difference that I am using software raid1 (mirrored).
