3.Does ubuntu need anti-virus

1) I think, udisk should be able to handle them...You must make sure to mount the floppy to access your files.

2) I don't know...sorry...

3) No, Ubuntu(or Linux in general) has no problems with viruses, trojan or other malware. But if you want an anti-virus, there is ClamAV in the Software Center ;)

About question number two, settings will not be lost if you upgrade, but if you do a fresh install they will be.
