I believe a MythDora installation will delete all information on the target 
disks, and it warns you of this before it does so.

I'd back up anything you want to keep before installing anything. This applies 
to just about anything, not just Myth, and applies even to things that 
purport to be non-destructive.

Matter of fact, I'd back up anything important even if you are NOT installing 
something new :-)
