Dear All

I am going to be re-installing leopard on my mac pro and starting from a fresh and I would like to keep my iTunes (with all the artwork, correct tags, playlists etc) iPhoto (Albums, collections, edited photos etc) Address book (all contacts) iMail (all settings and emails) and iCal (all calender events) from being deleted.

I did try doing a search on this but how is best to backup all these apps so when I go to reinstall all these programs I can import the libraries. I am not sure on correct terminology but I hope you understand what I mean.
