My previous version of 9.0 pro also came with DVDs but
 it did not support 64 bit. At that time you had to
buy the 64 bit version separately. With 9.2 it is
integrated in one version. Use the DVD if you can.

Things to backup may include:

The Mail file from your home directory plus any
contacts in Kmail if you used that.
Export your bookmarks (they will be saved in a HTML
file in a directory of your choice).
All your documents, files, programmes you downloaded
etc write them to a CD.
Make note of any special settings for things like
monitor, modem, scanner, digital camera etc.

I would strongly suggest that you do a clean install
rather than an upgrade.
