    back up all your junk, boot up off the disk, and there will be an option to erase the disk before installing, you should get a big ! warning or similar.

    If you keep them, you'll probably want to backup your Adium chatlogs (user/library/application support/adium 2.0), and export your safari/firefox bookmarks (app support/firefox, and it's file>export in Safari).

    You can backup your mail, too, but that's more of an issue if you can't redownload it. Basically just look through application support and see if there's anything you desperately don't want to lose and copy it. :)
