Why??? Because I don't work tonight (I've been working overnght ). I'd also like to spend the time seeing how the install goes, you know, in case I ever really DO need to reinstall this thing. Does anyone have any recommendations? As far as prefs go, I'm fine going through them again. I know to backup my purchased music and important files. Anything else I need to know before I start? How about while I'm reinstalling? Any settings that I should select? How about software/files that I don't need to install? I think I can do without most of the iLife stuff, except for iPhoto. Speaking of iPhoto... is there an easy way to back this up? Do I just burn the iPhoto folder to a DVD?
