i have a .dmg file of mac osx so that i can finally upgrade my computer. would just running the installation right of the hard drive be a bad thing or should i burn the image to a cd? when everything is said and done would it wipe out my hard drive or will it just install over it and keep all the existing files?

This is a good reminder that anything can fail and you should have a backup strategy in place. Even robust systems that power the internet like Amazon Web Services can and do fail.

So you're advised to backup any and/or all critical data.
