Best way to upgrade RH 9 to Gnome 2.2

I'm running RH 9.0 and very happy with it, however I would like to upgrade to Gnome 2.2. I want to do this in as 'clean' a way as possible, without destroying my carefully selected settings or breaking my system. Prefereably I would like to use RPMs to upgrade. Is there any simple way to manage this?

Doh. You are right, it does come with gnome 2.2. I could have sworn that gnome 2.2 was not released until several weeks after RH 9 , but oh well. Sorry.
