[Server-devel] Attempting to re-install jabber component of XS without re-installing the entire server

I installed what I think was 0.5.2 which was the newest stable release
available when I brought it to Jimeta in late March of 09.
So the steps that I should take are:
1) backup some part of my server (how should I go about doing this?) Are we
talking about making a copy of a particular directory here, or running a
utility of some kind?
2) Enter this at the command prompt as root:
yum --enablerepo=olpcxs-testing update
Wait for download and installation to complete
5) Configure my magically working Jabbery goodness
I'm most confused about step 1, how should I go about making a backup?
And how stable is this .6 pre-release candidate, because I want this to be
as stable as possible when I leave. Communication regarding technical
issues is extremely difficult once I leave and if things are unstable, it's
likely to grind half or all of this project to a halt.
