    All of your data should be on your computer.  If it is lost you would just sync it back.

    Installing iOS 5 will indeed delete all the content on your iPod. Sync everything to iTunes on your computer and make a backup (it should do so automatically when you sync, but confirm that it's done so). Then install iOS 5, restore from your backup, and resync your apps and content.

     

    Regards.
