You'd think.  I've done many installs, including several dual-boot installs, 
and have yet to destroy a system.  I did once wipe a computer's MBR by 
deciding to make it a pure Windows system and remove Debian.

Nevertheless, I get paranoid.

Now that I think about it, I suppose that installing Kubuntu probably won't 
touch the MBR at all, just alter GRUB.  Am I right?
