I am not familar with the S.u.S.E installation / update process, but normally you should be able to choose your Linux partition (ext2/ext3) and install S.u.S.E 9.0 at that partition(s).

here's a twist

Here's a twist on that question... if I wanted to upgrade from 8.2 to 9, (so I have 8.2 installed and want bigger faster better now) could I do that without losing all my saved files and special configurations (mainly, my silly Apache/PHP/MySQL set up it took me a week to get right?) Or should I just stay put? I know there is a way to update in Debian, but is there something similar for SuSE and other newbie distros?

In Mandrake, You can upgrade just the kernel and root file system with out changing your home and personel settings.When you drop in disk 1 ,it will ask if you are upgrading or installing.
