Fresh Install or Upgrade - Suse 11.1 from 10.3

Hi Folks,
I've tried Linux on and off for a few years now but only on spare boxes and not very seriously. I have Suse 10.3 running on a machine which is just used for family internet browsing at present. I am going to install 11.1 and I would not like to lose all the users bookmarks so I am considering upgrading rather than the clean install I would really prefer. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance for viewing or replies.

If you want to upgrade, you have to upgrade 10.3 to 11.0 and 11.0 to 11.1.

What bookmarks?

You should have fewer problems if you make a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.1. If you are referring to bookmarks in Firefox, you can export them as an HTML file and import them to Firefox in 11.1. Look under Bookmarks, Organise Bookmarks in Firefoxes Navigation Toolbar.

Good luck with it.

Many thanks. Went for the fresh install and apart from audio problem (now solved) all seems to have gone well.
