Backing up before fresh install

in macOS edited January 2014
I want some advice on how to back up my system before I do a fresh install of panther (have upgrade Panther now)

Particuarly, I want to make sure my 20GB iTunes library (yes all legal, it's taken me 3 weeks to rip) stays entirely intact.

I have a DVD burner, so I plan to burn my entire library to a couple of DVDs and store them someplace safe, so I never have to do it again. Obviously I have to backup the iTunes Music folder, and I would guess the iTunes Music Library.xml and iTunes 4 Music Library database. Anything else?

If I back up the rest of my home directory, minus the Music, I should get everything else right? Am I missing anything important?

Thanks for the help.
