OM2008.9 is just a snapshot during the evolution of 2008.8 toward today,
taken at the time of it's release.  if you install 2008.8 or 2008.9 and do
"opkg upgrade" you should end up at precisely the same place.

That said, have you tried the most recent 2008.x snapshot?  It's basically
2008.8 (or 2008.9 ;) 'opkg upgrade'd  through sometime last night.
