Once 9.1 will be release soon, you will see something like that: http://www.freebsd.org/releases/9.0R/installation.html You should of course backup your data. I did an upgrade from 8.3 to 9.1-RC3 recently without problems. But keep in mind that you will have to recompile/ reinstall all installed ports. I usually delete all installed ports before the upgrade to a new major version.
