I am not confident upgrading to 12.04 online. I have downloaded the 12.04 iso image and will burn the CD. May I use the CD to upgrade to 12.04, saving all my current settings and files?

Yes, you can. Just go ahead and pop the CD in and select Install Ubuntu and when it detects what OSs are already on the drive it will ask if you wish to upgrade to 12.04.

Before any upgrade I recommend you back up your data!! The source links has pictures if you wish to reference those.
