Using redsnow will wipe your ipad clean and restore a new jailbroken 4.3.2 IOS. Make sure you backup your data, files and apps before using redsnow

basically the process is:
Update itunes to 10.2.2 --> backup your files,data,apps (with whichever program you decide to use) --> run redsnow and follow its on-screen instructions --> open itunes when it tells you to--> perform restore with the file redsnow creates --> restore your files,data,apps back to your ipad --> WOO HOO! your on 4.3.2 now :-)

Careful Gmehenge. I think you have your information completely mixed up.

Both sn0wbreeze and pwnage tool jailbreaks do what you describe. They are custom firmware creation tools which DO wipe the iPad when you install them.
There is a very useful sticky in this section which details the methods and the differences between them.
Hope that helps to clear up any confusion you have..
