Basically we have a bunch of cisco access points 1131 configured for G here at the office.  I was looking into the 1142 so I can configure N.  However I would like to know if I configure a wireless N ssid would it be backwards.  Meaning if my SSID on the 1131 was ssid1 and i setup ssid1 on the 1142 for wireless N would my wireless N laptop show 2 ssid1 or just connect to the closest ssid1 it finds?

It depends on the Wireless Software and driver.  If you use Intel's Proset software, for example, you might see more than one AP with the same SSID and different capabilities.  Generally the client will connect to any AP as long as the wireless signal is good enough to negotiate security parameters.
