They store it in the same place but before upgrading any software always take a backup.
Check this link on how to do a backup in case you are not aware of it

Don't sweat it too much, you can actually remove outlook completely from your system and your data will still be sitting safely in your PST file.  Updating the actually program Outlook doesn't have any effect at all on the data.

I just recently upgraded outlook xp to outlook 2003 on several machines at our office with no problem.  You do not need to back anything up.
