I think you can upgrade to Fedora Core 2 without losing your files.
However - my recommendation is that you always keep your own files on a separate partition, not on the same where the system is (/). I always make a separate /home-partition to keep my settings and files. When I reinstall Linux, I can just reformat the system-, and swap-partitions and after installation chown all files on the /home-partition back to my new user.
