I've heard not to, at least going by the posts here on PSO. If you've got nasty particles sitting dormant in the system, a flush can actually exacerbate problems.
When you pick up your filter and fluid, it'd be a good idea to get filter clips- I don't know if they're available at your LAPS (Local Auto Parts Store), but your local $tealership should have them. They ensure the filter stays up snugly against the underside of the trans, because a dropped filter a) can starve the pump, and b) causes no-forward and reverse-stall issues. Bad news all around.
