Note the Fedora 12 upgrade notes do say that F10 -> F12 is a supported upgrade path..
I have personally done this from FC4->FC6->FC8->F10..
Some people seem to use the Yum upgrade method, where as I have always used the Install
from CD/DVD method..
I'm not sure what the DVD upgrade does, I presume some sort of rpm --force install of all
the F12 packages..
Good luck and let us know if you have success/problems..
