You won't lose the files if your upgrading os. If you did a fresh install, then you lose it.

Basic upgrade to what? There's always a risk in making a major system change, so if you plan to do anything, back up your data first.

If this computer came with Windows 2000 it probably doesn't meet the specs for Vista. You'd have to buy a new computer.
