Default H1 Transfer Mixed Opinions

Since stay in India need to be very short and also my travel is very near, I need to know whether it is safe to travel on an approved I 797 from my current employer?

I already have a H1 B VISA stamped on my passport with previous employer's name that expires on 30 Nov 2009.

Also, I would like to know whether I should select yes/no to the following question?

Are you applying for the same class of visa which is currently valid or has expired within the past 12 months?*

Is H1B Transfer = H1B Renewal?

Thanks in advance.

H1B Transfer is not equal to H1B Renewal.
H1B transfer: when you change your job, you transfer your H1B visa to the new employer.
H1B Renewal: when you stay in the same company for 3 years, you need to file h1B renewal for the 2nd duration of 3 years.
