    If you've been installing your own personal versions of things, you may
    have some conflicts, especially if you've been rolling RPM's from later
    releases back (such as OpenSSH or Apache). Also, some packages have
    moved, such as Apache switching from /home/httpd to /var/www, so you may
    wind up needing to repartition if you've made /home or /var separate.

    Why not just back the old system up and do a clean installation from
    scratch?
