You're almost halfway there. Now just save that folder (along with anything else you might want) to a USB storage device so that you can restore it once you've got Mint installed.
A bit off-topic here, but is there a LUG (Linux Users Group) near you? If there is, you should be able to get all the assistance you need to get Mint installed on your your Aspire One and all your old data restored. Much easier than trying to do it via the forum if you've got lots of questions. Best move I made when I first started out with Linux was joining a local LUG.
