Back up settings before murdering my system

Ive now got a working Linux install that im happy to keep.
However, I keep reading about Beryl and how great it is, so to continue my learning curve im going to have a bash at installing and using it.
But before I do i want to back up what i have now, so that if things do go wrong i can revert back to how it was.

What is the best way to do this in Linux?
