Question Upgrade questions

Hi all!

I have a question about upgrading. At this time, I use Mandrake 9.1 and would like to know the best way to upgrade my system to 9.2. Also, because I have another system with Mandrake 9.0, and the difference between the two seems to be fairly noticeable, I would like to know how to restore the previous version if I need to and keep all my files in place.

If anyone could let me know, I would really appreciate the help! Everyone on this board has always been very helpful in the past!

Thanks again for your time!

Upgrading Mandrake has never really worked for me, so I tend to backup /home to another drive and reinstall MDK.

On another note, there seems to be some bugs in MDK 9.2 right now, so unless you need some extra functionality of 9.2, stick with 9.1
