Success on both Server and Desktop
Just reporting back. Preupgrade was a flop (even on the Fedora 9 desktop) and I will never use that method again. It failed to work out some dependencies and messed up my bootloader. So I downloaded the Fedora 10 install DVDs (i386 for the desktop and X86_64 for the server) and upgraded directly from the DVDs. The desktop upgrade went very smoothly. The only hitch was I had to reconnect the ethernet cable (the desktop uses a wireless connection) after the install, update kmod-ndiswrapper, and then disconnect and reboot -- at which point everything worked fine.
On the server, I uninstalled the nVidia driver, upgraded using the CD, and then reinstalled the nVidia driver. I do not know whether that was necessary, but it was easy enough to do. What was nice is all my settings were retained (presumably because the install left my xorg.conf untouched). Anyway, I had a few dependency problems to work out in my first "yum upgrade" but otherwise this went very smoothly.
For anyone who wants to learn from my mistakes, I would suggest just spending the time to download the install DVD and upgrade that way. It seems to go much more smoothly, and that way you always have a rescue disc close at hand in case you mess things up (which I tend to do from time to time).
Happy Holidays to all!
