Best practices for reinstalling Home folder when upgrading to latest Linux (Ubuntu 10.10)?

Linux filter: I'm backing up my Home folder and preparing to upgrade to the latest Ubuntu flavor, 10.10. Presently running 10.04. I want to keep my settings for apps and reinstall my extra PPAs. Do I simply copy my old Home folder back in or do I have to do something special so I don't destroy the new install?

I'm wondering if I do the new install & resync the old Home folder into the new install space, will Ubuntu update all my old stuff automagically or is there a smarter way to go about this.
