installing Ubuntu 8.04 over 6.10


I am running Ubuntu 6.10, and now have a cd for Ubuntu 8.04. Will it overlay 6.10, or do I have to do other things, like saving all data, etc?
Thanks, Len Tyree.

It's always good to have backups - make a copy of your /home directory to a cd or dvd. This way you'll be safe not to loose any changes...
