What I suspect you have done is to install SL over your previous version instead of what is known as a "clean" install. You did not reformat the drive and install to that now virginal drive. You have just overlaid what you had with SL. Now, if it's working fine, there is no reason to do anything at all. But if what you wanted was a true "clean" install then you follow what pigoo3 has said to do, which is to boot from the DVD, format the internal HD and reinstall SL, then restore from your backup using either Migration Assistant or whatever you used to clone your previous system. What you did wasn't "wrong" but it wasn't what you set out to do.
