    I'm going to erase and install when Leopard comes and I was just going to back up my home folder on my external hard drive. Just to double check and make sure, my home folder contains EVERYTHING on my Mac that I might want (music, pictures, applications, etc.), correct? Thanks!

    No, applications are not in your home folder, they are in a folder off the root.
