    What, if anything, is important to keep (besides the obvious of my personal folders) before I send my MBP off to Apple Land to be fixed, and most likely erased?

    My HDD is failing, and SuperDuper won't back it up. Carbon Copy Cloner did, but gave me a whooooole bunch of errors. Are there files that I should keep?

    Keychains? is there a Firefox preferance file that keeps all my bookmarks, passwords, etc?

    Make a copy of your Home folder and you should be right. That'll keep things like your Firefox preferences, among others. Are there any apps you need? :)

    Damn Mad Jew, you are ON IT! Every question I ask, you are the first one to respond :)

    I think I have the install disks for all the apps I need, or they are easy Downloads (Firefox, Palm desktop, Flip4WMV, etc)

    This is just gonna be a big pain in the arse!
