Before doing anything, however, DO BACKUPS!
If you are dual booting, you will want to install os-prober, run os-prober and then update-grub2. If you’d like instructions, search for my nickname and “os-prober” and you’ll find several instances.
If you want to upgrade from Jaunty to Karmic rather than reinstalling, I highly suggest you do both before upgrading.
