Use target disk mode to create a disk image backup

If you're worried about preferences, most are user-specific. Backing up your ~/Library folder and putting it in the home account of a new install should take care of most of the settings you'd have tweaked. AddressBook, Mail, and the like will carry over. Of course you'll still have to re-install all your apps and what not, and reset system-wide settings like those found in the Network prefs. But I thought it was worth a mention.
