How to install LL but keep /home

<< < (2/2)

Hey, Not sure if this thread is still viable but I will ask anyway. I am currently running LL 4.8 on my T310 by Dell. I want to upgrade to the LL 5 seres. I just need to know the best way to save the current information I have on the 4.8 LL. I know it has to do with saving "home" but I am not sure the best way to do it when I install. I have LL 5.0 on a DVD loaded in the DVD tray. ready to go

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

When upgrading to a new series (4 to 5), it's not always best to preserve the /home partition, since the Xfce desktop upgrades as well, and your old desktop settings may mess up the new desktop. Instead, copy all your bookmarks, photos, documents, etc. to a thumbdrive and copy them back to your new fresh install of of 5.4.

Within a series, though, you can choose "something else" at installation when offered the partitioning choice, then uncheck "format this partition" to preserve the /home partition.
