    No (however, a backup is a good idea anyways, never know what may happen)

    There are 3 install choices, 2 of which keep all your data/apps intact:

    Upgrade: Overwrites Tiger with Leopard, keeps all data/apps intact
    Archive & Install: Achives your system and library folders, then installs Leopard over Tiger, apps/docs intact.
    Erase & Install: Wipes hard drive, installs Leopard. apps/docs not intact.
