Hi, I am currently running the following i386 9.0 on my firewall system.

FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE #0: Tue Jan  3 07:15:25 UTC 2012     root at  i386

I need to upgrade to 9.1 or 9.2 or higher but I'd also like to switch over to amd64 as 
my install of i386 was a stupid mistake 2 years ago :-).

tips on how to install /upgrade please?   Will the installer of amd64/9.2 notice my existing system?
