    You can usually do a 9.2 to 9.4 upgrade in 4 steps.



    1. Take a backup.


    2. Install 9.4 into an unused partition/slot


    3. Use switchboot to change the default boot location to the 9.4 slot


    4. reboot.



    That assumes you have tested your config already and know it'll load in 9.4 (Yes there can be problems).



    What more info do you require? Send a post and we'll see what we can come up with.
