Well the title says it all.. i don't want to lose all of my settings with a fresh install and I only have the desktop CD, so can you do the upgrade with it?

Thanks,
Jean

No. The desktop CD installs by cloning a live filesystem, whereas the alternate CD has a collection of .deb package files. To do an upgrade-in-place you either need a network connection to a repository, or an alternate CD.

Nope.
