Retaining settings on re-install?
I want to either re-install RH9 on my current box (Celeron 466 o/clocked to 525MHz, 256Mb RAM, 16Mb video, 2 HDDs - 1 x 10Gb, 1 x 4Gb - SB Live SC etc), or "upgrade" to FC2 or 3.
I have copied most of the stuff from my home directory to a RH9 Server I have running here, but am wondering what (if anything) I can do to preserve my individual settings post upgrade. If, for example, I do a complete re-install of the OS, can I then migrate my original settings back? If I'm using Evolution for POP3 mail, and the mail is stored in mbox format, can I retain the mail and re-import it later?
Pretty crappy questions, I know, but I haven't tried preserving settings in the past (just blown everything away and started again - this time I'd like to keep what I've got, if possible...)
Thanks in advance.
