, & welcome to LQ.

What you suggest is problematic: /proc has all your ram in it; /dev/, /media, & /mnt may contain all the disks you have mounted. /sys likewise has issues. You can't back them up and use that for a new install. If you run without them, the system won't boot.

try this:

cd /
tar -zcvf etc.tar.gz /etc/*
Which will back up your configuration to etc.tar.gz. Simply use the install cd and you can duplicate the settings by running

cd /
tar -zxvf /path/to/etc.tar.gz

There are backup programs, which, I gather you pay for.
