also, on the subject of making reinstallations easier, a seperate /home
partition goes a long way. as for packages, synaptic has a method of
generating a list of installed packages that can be plugged into synaptic
on the new install so that it can install those packages again one go.
just make sure to save the generated package list somewhere it won't be
lost in the reinstall, such as the /home partition.
