what sort of mount points are you talking about? HD partitions or
network shares?

HD partitions can be perserved durring a fresh install as long as they
are not system partitions (i.e. /sbin /etc /lib).  I have a machine in
which the /home partition has remained intact over several Ubuntu
releases.

Network shares on a fresh install will have to be remounted.  Backing up
your /etc/fstab files is very usefull for this.
