Here is my list (i have reinstalled several times):
1. Backup the mysql db using the method outlined on the mythtv site.
I think mysqldump...
2. Also I copy the mysql raw files on fedora it is /var/lib/mysql, so
I have multiple methods of restoring.
3. Save off /etc/...
4. Of course your homedirs.
5. Of course the dir containing your media files.
