It's a very simple question, I know, but I'd like to put it to the forum anyway. I'd like to upgrade to 8.04, but I want the transistion to go as smooth as possible. When I upgraded from 7.04 to 7.10, I just wound up doing a total reinstall. I'd rather not do that this time becuse I don't want to have to redo all of my configuration files and reinstall all of my software.
So, what should I backup? Are there any problem areas that this upgrade has? Should I consider waiting to upgrade? Is there any good backup software? Any other random hints to make this a nice, easy upgrade experience?
