How do I use the same render settings from one scene for other scenes?

I’m working on a animation project,
where I have a couple animation “clip” scenes(the character) and the main scene(the set).
I’ve linked the main scene to the animation scnes.
Problem is that I don’t know how to use the same settings for each scene.
I could copy them,but since I’m using yafray It would get rather tedious.
Id appreciate the help,when my new computer arrives I’ll finish
(from a draft,minimal keys nice and clean) a piece of it and get some input

Have you tried using the save default setting option from the file menu?

I have just tried it and it seems to remember any changes made to Yafray settings.

Hope this helps.
