    The best way is to do a clean install (as tiersen also mentioned). Simply because Fedora is bleeding edge (using the latest and greatest software).

    As a result of this, the difference between 2 versions can be huge, let along upgrading from version 6 to 9.

    What you could do is copying the relevant .directories (for example .evolution, .mozilla and .thunderbird) to DVD or network (or other harddisk) and reinstall.

    If the /home directory is on a seperate partition, you can do a clean install without copying (don't format /home during the install). Create the same user and all data remains.
