Smile Upgrading Mandriva without reinstalling OS


I am new to Linux, and am using Mandriva Free 2008. I would like to know how to upgrade the OS without having to reinstall the entire OS. I am afraid I may lose all my files and data by doing so. Is there a way to just do an upgrade? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
