Yes. IMHO, it always turns out to be less of a hassle to do a fresh 
install than trying to jump through burning loops and upgrade from one 
major version to the next.

I always carefully document every install I do, step by step, the more 
so since I have to install identical systems on many machines. I keep an 
SVN tree with my own documentation and configuration files. When a new 
release (of CentOS, Slackware, Debian, whatever) comes out, I try a 
manual install on a sandbox partition, and then try to automate things 
as much as possible.
