    Boot-menu definition in menu.lst or grub.conf
    ->/boot/grub/*

    Do you compile your own kernel?
    Backup current kernel configuration (.config) file.
    ->/usr/src/linux/.config

    Backup the entire stable kernel image in
    ->/boot directory.

    Has root-user own documents, files?
    ->/root

    Where are users' email stored ?
    -> in $HOME ? in $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/ ? or /var/spool/mail/ ?

    I install most of the additional software in /usr/local/. Some people
    install software in /usr/opt/. But this type sw is normally easy to DL
    and reinstall.
