Default upgrading/new hardware from 4.0

My current server is old.. and all disks are causing heatproblems which crashes the server due to writecacheproblems and the idebus. So now i bought a new disk and will remove 4 of the 8 disks and it got me thinking.
Time to upgrade to 4.4, as in make a fresh install from scratch.

However i use the server as storage for the house and im running a webhotell for me and my closest friends.

What is the best way to do this?

Build the new computer, recreate exact same users, and add packages that was added and then simply move home from the old box to the new?

or is there some better way?

I have also thought about moving to fedora10... pro/con?
