    I am about to replace my system drive and start a fresh install of Snow Leopard. I have a time machine backup of my system drive. Now does Time Machine backup everything? All my photos, stuff on desktop, etc? and once I have Snow Leopard installed can I restore everything from the Time Machine backup to the new install so it's as if nothing has changed?

    yes, time machine will back up everything. make sure that iphoto was closed when you last backed up. i noticed that time machine doesn't backup changes to the library if iphoto is open at the time.

    When I install Snow Leopard will it ask me about my Time Machine backup? or what do I have to do to restore it?

    EDIT: Question solved.
