I have an XP and 8.2 dual boot that I would like to remove 8.2 and install 9.2 in its place. It seems like the easiest way to do this is to just boot from the 9.2 DVD and tell it to wipe out the 8.2 install and put 9.2 in its place. I do not want to destroy the XP install. Is there anything special I need to do? Anybody run into any problems doing this?
I updated my daughter's laptops from a dual boot XP home/9.1 to 9.2. Just tell Yast to update installed system. It worked quite smooth for that update. You might want to back up for a jump from 8.2 to 9.2, as so much has changed. YMMV
