How do I save desktop apperance config?

Due to recent issues with Cedega and Nvidia Drivers with MAndy 2006 I have decided to reinstall...

I edited the colors and theme of my desktop to my liking... Is there any way I can save my desktop apperance for the new install?\\

That depends, what Desktop Environment/Window Manager are you using?

Just out of curiosity, why would you think you need to reinstall? or do you just want to reinstall?

You could backup your ~/.kde/share/config directory. It holds most if not all of the rc files for kde apps, but don't quote me on that.
