I have found some really good tutorials on doing a Clean Install with Snow Leopard. I originally did the upgrade but would now like to do a clean install to get my machine in as much of a factory condition as possible. I have a clone of Tiger just before the install. I also have time machine running and a backup of the hard drive with Snow Leopard.

Here's what I don't know how to do as I'm not very computer literate. After the clean install how do I restore just certain files like mail, iPhoto, and iTunes libraries? I will also be upgrading from iLife 06 to iLife 09 if that matters.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
QUOTE Thanks
