You shouldn't haphazardly copy over your old /etc files as many updates 
change many of the configurations to resolve bugs or security problems 
or new features.  Just copy over the files that you are sure you need 
(Like /etc/ssh/sshd_config, /etc/apache/* etc..).  Most of your GUI 
programs config changes are not saved in /etc, but in 
/home/username/.appconfig files.  Backing up your /home directories is a 
better bet.
