I just moved my wife's /home folder from her dying PCLinuxOS laptop to 
her new KUbuntu laptop - just tarred up the folder, untarred it onto her 
laptop, ran chown to reset the ownerships - and everything came over 
just fine. Mail (Thunderbird), Firefox, Konqueror, some (not all) 
OpenOffice settings, desktop preferences and links, wallpaper, Kopete 
settings, etc.
