Hi all,

I need to do a fresh install, but I don't want to have to reconfigure everything (as well as I don't remember everything I have done) Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance,
Chris

Then I'm not sure - you could possibly copy yout home to an external media (usb/dvd) and then when you do a fresh install, create a seperate home partition and replace the stuff there with the stuff from your old home...or you could set up another home partition on your existing setup, migrate everything on to that, and then when you do a fresh instal, don't install over the home partition?
