[wellylug] Backup Files - Ubuntu

Can anyone suggest which files should be backed-up to prepare for a
fresh install of Ubuntu Dapper from an existing Ubuntu Hoary system?  I
have backed-up all the files in the Home Folder (i.e. /home/user), as
well as the /etc and /usr/local directories.  

Also, is using growisofs to DVD an appropriate back-up method (my
Nautilus CD/DVD Creator isn't working) - the back-up files "look" OK to
me - or is tar better?   Thanks.
