    [SOLVED] Upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04 - Automatrix

    I am planning on upgrading from 7.10 to 8.04 using the Update Manager soon, but I took a look at the UpgradeNotes:
    Using packages from repositories not controlled by Ubuntu is not recommended as it can be a security risk and may break or complicate your upgrade. If you have used EasyUbuntu or Automatix (neither of which is recommended nor supported), you may have problems upgrading to a newer version that requires a fresh install.
    I have Automatrix installed currently; can I uninstall it (uninstall everything it installed and then remove it from Synaptic) and then upgrade and be fine, or will I have to do a "fresh install"?
    And if I need to do a "fresh install" how can I backup my settings and replace them after the install is complete?

    I am mainly concerned about my VMware settings the most...
    Any Idea's?
    Thanks,
