Preparing to upgrade to 10.1

I have Slackware 10.0 and Windblows 2000 sharing my hda drive. I am preparing to upgrade to Slackware 10.1. I have the official 4cd set, and I plan to follow Pat's upgrade.txt file instructions. I also have an hdb with several partitions for backup. I have copied /home, /etc, /boot, /opt, /lib/modules/2/4/26, and /usr over to hdb. Is there anything else I should do/backup before I begin the upgrade?

I did this upgrade without problem on 4 computers. If you really fear for some files, then do backups. If you painly configured some system files, it could be good to backup them too.
