Upgrade from 8.0 -> 9.0 is painless and you could choose what packages need to be left untouched (mysql,apache...)

I have (1) rh8 server just running samba file and print services & nfs. Can you give a brief description on doing a inplace
migration from rh8.0 -> 9.0 I've been researching this option today and not really clear. I have yum installed and apt will be installed this weekend. I have tape backup (amanda) on another server. Another other key question is how much free disk space do I need, current partitioning scheme is as follows:


Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda7             486M  181M  280M  40% /
