    If you have a separate /home partition, yes. If not you'll need to backup your data to another drive first. There are a number of options for that. Here are some linux backup utilities (some are already in the repo's.):

    You can also create a separate /home partition after Ubuntu is installed: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome
