Get a usb hard drive, copy it all over, done. Usb hard drives are cheap these days.

You can use partition magic to partition the drive, throw all your stuff on the new partition, format and reinstall, copy it all back, and either keep the partition, or put it back to one partition. I always like to keep my stuff i want to keep on a seperate drive so that when i DO have to do a new os, its always backed up. C: contains only windows, thats it.
