Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Not strictly true. In Debian Apt will perform that upgrade, but apt4rpm will not do that. The rpms downloaded will always be for version 8. You can keep it up to date - download the latest kernels, programs, bug fixes, etc but you will always be running version 8.
Why not go to one of the cheap linux cd sites and buy version 9 for a couple of dollars/pounds. Or download for free from any one of a number of sites and mirrors.
I just went and purchased a new copy of V9 instead. I do have anothe question for you. I justed received my replacement HD now if I want to try the Linux server along with the desktop, when I partition the Hd I can install the server on one and the destop on the other???
