Depends. If you're using a realtime kernel then no, definitely not. The rt kernels in Jaunty are seriously broken (or they were when I tried them anyway) and do not work at all on mutliprocessor machines. It's not an Ubunutu-specific problem, there were simply serious issues with the rt-kernel patch at that time.

On the plus side, the very latest 2.6.31 kernel has almost realtime performance as stock, and enabling preempt on it gives better performance than any previous realtime kernel - at least in my experience. My advice is, if you want to upgrade, wait for Karmic.
