I upgraded one machine with KDE from lenny to squeeze and did not 
experience any major issues. However, this was not a very customized 
environment. Actually I'm trying to switch it over to LXDE as it is more 
than enough for what it is currently used and would deal with the 
complaints about KDE 4 being slower.

If you want to play it extra safe you can tell kaboom (the settings 
migration wizard) to NOT migrate your settings and just start fresh. If 
you are not familiar with KDE 4 be prepared for major changes in the way 
things are done although I've read it is possible to bring it closer to 
KDE 3.5
