Can't be done..AFAIK ..but I may be wrong..
But you can run mint "live".and then if you like it install "side by side" with lucid ..and then move the data that you want to keep "over" to the mint side..and eventually remove lucid ..or keep it ..
In a side by side installation of mint and lucid, each would have access to each others folders via "mount"..
And for the windows users ( I have windows machines, but don't use them for the net ) one can install linux ( mint included obviously ) side by side with windows ( windows side installed first ) and the linux side can always see the windows side ( but never vice-versa )..this is why linux ( even live discs ) can be used to rescue data from windows when it won't boot or even to repair windows..
posted from Mint..( win7 ulti is on the other side of this machine..for updates to be passed to my other win boxen which are not allowed to connect directly to "outside" ) ..get the DVD version of Mint ( with all the codecs and the media players etc and other "pre installed stuff"..<= not bloat ware ..very useful )..not the standard smaller version..
