It is safe but I have not seen a good check list for this upgrade path yet.
From FC1 to FC2 I have a short unfinished list of tweaks I am

If you have a small test machine to do a scratch install of FC2.
Perhaps a scratch RH9 then FC2 update. Tinker and test, then go for the
real upgrade. With a scratch FC2 system you will be able to compare things
and quickly solve many of your own configuration change issues.
My checklist does include fixing /etc/sysconfig/rhn/system as a #1
thing to do. Thus:
mv /etc/sysconfig/rhn/system /etc/sysconfig/rhn/system-RHn-reference
mv /etc/sysconfig/rhn/system.rpmnew /etc/sysconfig/rhn/system
up2date --show-orphans > /root/rpm-orphans-after-upgrade
up2date # or up2date-nox to get updates for a couple things quickly.
For a long running system like this "--show-orphans" can remind you of
many packages you may need to give special attention to. For example
pine might matter to you.
My #2 is to clean up the rpmnew and rpmsave files. I am impatient
so I force slocate.cron to run.
locate rpmnew # inspect and run differences on each
locate rpmsave # inspect and run differences on each
# locate rpmnew
# ls -l /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
-rw-r----- 1 root sys 21350 May 21 02:15 /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
-rw-r----- 1 root sys 21225 Jun 2 08:34 /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew
Now decide what to do..
# diff /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
# less /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
# vim -d /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.rpmnew /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Some folks would put some of the X related changes closer to the top.
I will let them add their notes. Since you said server my #1 and #2
are good choices for 1 & 2.
Named is now chrooted... make sure named is correct if you are running it.
