I would tar everything up in /etc - all configuraton files are typically kept there.

tar cvf /{your_backup_dir}/etc_backup.tar /etc

Historically all your OS configuration is kept in /etc/, but since this is Solaris 10, a safe thing to do in addition to tar'ing the /etc directory is the following command:

tar cvf conf_files.tar `find / -name "*.conf"`

Pay particular attention to the quote marks in this line - one out of place and it won't work.
