Well, "all of it". Your old "/etc" is moved to "/etc.old". The new
"/etc" will be pristine with the exception of the network setup, and
that's only if you answered "yes" to sysinstall's quesion, "Are these
the correct network settings...". You have to do diffs and merge all
your changes by hand.

How's that for not doing everything for you? ;-)
