back up the .transmission folder in your home folder and of course the unfinished downloaded files.

Perhaps its time for you to consider a separate home partition (http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome).

The correct path is ~/.config/transmission

Anyway, since you have a separate home partition, why bother? Just make sure you don't format the home partition during re-install and mount it properly. Your torrents will be kept as they are.
