The OS is UBUNTU (pronounced OO-BOON-TOO), not umbuntu:

Shows the folders to archive, you can then install tomboy and overwrite the folders with your backed up data.

You could use Brasero, choose 'make data CD' and just add content of tomboy folder to the project.
Or backup as tar, you could even encrypt it with gpg (symetric or asymetric) and move the tar file to CD.
Decrypt and unpack on new system or wherever. (Just an idea)
