put all your stuff in a pendrive. then uninstall ubuntu and then do a clean install of karmic

Also, when you install, it's a good idea to have your home directory on a seperate partition so that when you upgrade to the next version, you don't have to worry about moving data. (anytime there is a new filesystem, you should do a clean install)

Though if you do that, be careful not to format your home partition when you upgrade.

EDIT: Also, make sure that you give your root partition enough space for any apps you want to install, and temporary files, etc. I would recommend a minimum of 5G. I personally have mine set to 20G, with a home partition of 200G, but really, you should just set it to what you think you will need.
