Update Gnome Desktop How Too?

Hi Everyone,
I finally got back to using linux again. I am currently running SuSe 9.0 pro. I notice that my Gnome desktop is 2.2x and the current is 2.4.x and I would like to update this. Is there a simple way to do this? If so can you provide a link to it and some instructions.
I also would like to put some wallpaper on my desktop but have not found any yet can some one show me a place I can do this. I know I can do it in KDE easy- but I am trying to learn Gnome.

Thanks for your help.

In my experience the difference between Gnome 2.2 and 2.4 is slight and the risks involved in upgrading are large. You're looking at a lot of work with a significant risk that you'll end up with a broken system and have to reinstall SuSe.
Go Back! Here be Monsters! Aieeee....
Or to put it another way, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
