I ordered Snow Leopard and want to do a clean install when it arrives. How do I backup my Safari bookmarks so I can transfer them over? Thanks.

    go to - Home/Library and make a backup of the "Safari" folder this contains bookmark/history/top site info.
    If it's really only the Bookmarks you're interested in, then just copy that.

    After your clean install, put them back in the same location in your Snow Leopard Home Folder.
