Thanx alot!

Assuming they haven't changed their update settings, just boot from the RedHat 9 cd and there should be an option somewhere 'update to redhat 9' or something. Or was that in Mandrake??? Can someone check this please?

sure, have a look at apt4rpm, if they provide RH9 repositories you can upgrade from 8 to 9
