Upgrade the OS: 
This is a nice short guide:
Or the official release notes:

Upgrade Freeside:

It is in 1.9.  In 1.7, some configuration is in the filesystem 
(Configuration->Settings). The Freeside upgrade will take care of the 
migration for you.

I would.

Alternatively, you could try moving things over and then running the 
normal Freeside upgrade tasks, but that sounds prone to errors and more 
of a pain to me.  The Debian 4.0->5.0 upgrade is straighforward.  Plus, 
you're using a VM, so you can snapshot and rollback as many times as you 
need to.
