Description of problem:
My preupgrade failed because of insufficient disk space on /boot. Couldn't preupgrade check for sufficient disk space in advance, when started using preupgrade command from running environment?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
low disk space is announced after downloading all packages and running the upgrade itself
low disk space is announced right after running preupgrade command in the graphical dialog

I was preupgrading from Fedora 11 to Rawhide (soon to be released as F12).
It *does* check for sufficient space, but anaconda uses a different algorithm - it attempts an RPM transaction test, which also does a check for available space.
Preupgrade used the same check as anaconda in the past, but it took several minutes to run and still failed to notice when there was insufficient room on /boot.
