Make sure you do all the converting on Windows and don't forget to
export your address book to csv if you have one. If you backup
"C:\Users\" on Vista or "C:\Documents and Settings\" on XP you'll have
all your data unless you don't store files in the default locations. I
also have a backup of the install partition should you ever need it.
Follow the rest of the advice and it should be fine.
