Many configuration files are within your home directory. Backup all files there as well . hidden files. Also other configuration files will be in /etc. Backing up this directory will save most of that.

System wide configurations are contained in /etc/. You might want to make a tar backup of this directory periodically. You could use the find command to locate files modified since your last backup to make differencial backups. One handy program is kdar which can be used to backup to CD or DVD's.
