    <sigh>. always back up your data before doing anything with the system
    like updating. Back your entire drive up on CD's or, god forbid, Zips.
    I would go to 9.1. 9.2.2 is mostly for compatability with OS 10.x and
    on your machine, 9.1 would probably do just fine. I don't remember that
    far back but you could probably do a Clean Install which will archive
    your old system (I think it re-names it Old System) without changing
    anything and install the new system. Providing you have enough HD space
    for both and enough memory.
