Any file that you have customized or changed. Common things would be
/etc/hosts
/etc/resolv.conf
/etc/samba/smb.conf
/etc/exports
/etc/inetd.conf
~/.bashrc and other dot files
...

If you haven't done a lot of tweaking, you should be OK. Any files that
are changed during the upgrade should be backed up as <file>.rpmsave.

The most important thing is to back up your data, the other stuff can be
recreated with a small amount of effort if necessary.

Best Regards,
Keith
