upgrading from ubuntu 8.4 LS to 9.04


Hello,

I am using ubuntu 8.04 LS,I have spent quite a bit of
time setting my Toshiba laptop to do everything I want with
ubuntu including setting up my 3 usb modem (Australia).

If I upgrade to 9.04 would I lose all my work setting up
my ubuntu 8.04 LS including my wireless internet?

Ubuntu 8.04 LS is suported till 2010 and Ubuntu 8.04 LS is suported
till 2011, What happens after 2010, if I upgrade to 9.04. Do I have to reinstall my 8.04 LS to be able to keep my computer up to date with the updates etc.

Thank you,

There is nothing wrong with Hardy. I had hardy for long and recently upgraded to Jaunty. I feel there isnt much excitement and no reason to upgrade if you have a running Hardy. Its a LTS that will be supported for 3yrs. And clean install is always more advocated.
