You can try.  :)

There is, in the RH docs, an upgrade path mentioned, however, even they
don't seem to have much faith in it.   Their recommendation is to use
the DVD choosing the Upgrade option.  

There are going to be some MAJOR changes, including a jump from 2.6.18
kernel to 2.6.30-something, changes in glibc, and so on.  So while some
people may successfully upgrade, I suspect that most will be doing a
backup and reinstall.
