Yes, no problem.

The installer of M9 asks you by a checkbox if you would like to 
uninstall your older copy of M. It is unchecked by default.

Now I have two copies,  M8 and M9 on my laptop.

Murray Eisenberg added a good advice, since I play around with the menu 

"Depending on your situation, you_may_  wish to set the option to keep
separate preferences for different versions. To do that, open the
Preferences (on Mac -- Options on Windows, I think) and select the
System tab on the resulting window. Check the box "Create and maintain
version specific front end preferences."

Liebe Grüße, Best wishes, Reinhard
