Well if you go from 8.04 to 8.10 to 9.04 you won't. But this will take a long time.

If you were to reinstall all of your configuration files should be stored in a hidden file. (Sorry I haven't used gnome forever so I don't remember what this might be) Meaning that you could just make a backup of this, and after you installed 9.04 you copied it over the other 'new' configuration folder.

For KDE, all of the configuration is inside /home/user/.kde
