Ok so does this mean that I can just install roll up 9 with having to install all the other beneath it 1 -8, sorry for sounding a little thick but its hard to find an explanation on it. Would you know of any useful web sites that has install guides as Microsoft ones i find extremly bloating.

Can you clarify
1. I dont need to install the other 8 just rollup 9

2.I need to install all 1-9 rollups.

rollup 9 contains all the rollups 1-8 plus whatever is new.  Rollups are also known as Cumulative Updates. Is there a reason why you aren't going all the way to rollup 14?
