Prepare the box before get Gutsy

Gutsy is already released now. It should be better to have original updated Feisty before upgrading. I mean no software from 3rd party repos. What I have are wine, fm2007[under wine] and compiz-fusion. First uninstall FM2007 leave me some menu entry that i need to manually delete it. I will post about this later. Afterthat i remove wine then compiz-fusion. Compiz-fusion set has a few packages installed and I can't remember the names what i do is ..

pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ echo "sudo aptitude remove "`sudo dpkg -l |egrep compiz| awk '{print $2}'`|sudo bash

Is there a way to revert to the original (fresh) install of Fiesty/Gutsy without having to go through the Live CD install? If so could you please post it in a comment on my blog?

I dunno how to get notified if you post a reply after my comment (if there is such a thing).
