When i decide to do a fresh install of the latest Ubuntu release 8.04 will i also have to reinstall programs such as PHP5 etc that are currently running under Gutsy Gibbon?

yes, a fresh install is just that, starting from scratch. however, you could try upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy, i've had pretty good experiences with upgrading distributions.

I would try upgrading first. But make sure everything is backed up first.
If it all goes wrong do a fresh install :)

A fresh install wipes your harddrive and then install ubuntu, so everything on the drive/partition is gone.
