The safest way is to reinstall, but I have used the apt-get
dist-upgrade to go FC2->FC3 w/o problems, too. If you want to play
safe the release notes to FC3 have some text on how to do a
non-anaconda upgrade. The installation of the mentioned packages can
be made with apt-get. But I think all of these steps are performed by
an apt-get dist-upgrade anyway.
