Ant configuration you want to keep (your home directory, roots home
directory, /etc . etc can be placed in a tar file(s) and restored on
your new machine. Network configuration is in /etc.
Also be aware of the -k option on untarring. It will not overlay any
existing file with a file from the tar with the same name. Not
overlaying new gnome configuration files is a good use of this
feature.
