I've been a RedHat user since RedHat 5 and while I have a few upgrade
tales of woe, they're ancient history since I came up with a short list
of best practices for doing them. I modified them a bit to take into
account the new preupgrade process but it's all based on the same
strategy - don't mess with the existing installation! The basic points are:
* always keep /home on a different partition
* use multiple / partitions
* if doing an upgrade, clone the existing / partition to a new one, boot into
that, then try the upgrade

For a long time I used to have separate partitions for /, /var, /usr, /tmp and so
on, which goes back to the days when UNIX-y systems performed better with the
partitions broken out like that, but that's not been the case for years now.
(Whew.) Now I keep the whole system under / with /home and /boot separate and
it makes it a snap to be able to boot back into my old installation if I have to,
or mount the old / to recover settings in /etc
