1) Do I have to do clean install? (is there option to clean install)

2) I have bootcamp with windows and few games installed on it. If I upgrade to lion, do i have to go through the bootcamp again and re-install the games?

Thanks!

1) no (yes, if you extract the disk image from the installer before running the installer then make a bootable disc, you can erase your drive and then do a fresh installation)
2) no

It's my day off. My fiancee gave me the option to go to the DMV with her. I said heck no, and stayed here! Quick responses courtesy of Dr. K, who gave me such a terrible alternative choice! haha
