I've not installed 11g yet, but 64bit version is not out there. That makes me think that 11g is a bit more than 10.3. However i think you'd better to continue with your general approach a to migrate to that a big jump from 9iR2. When we 2 year ago have migrated to 10.1 on Linux x86_64 we have had a lot of problems and nothing can makes me convince that similar problems could not happen with new version 11g.
Obviously nothing prevent you to start testing also 11g
