    Yes, maintain backups. And yes, a separate partition for your /home directory will achieve what you want. I set up my installs that way, and it has helped me immensely.

    [ubuntu] Re: Error:unknown filesystem grub rescue

    I assume the thread title is the error you are seeing. As far as I know, this generally means that the grub boot loader cannont find the drive it is looking for to boot from.

    [ubuntu] Re: Sound problem on shut down

    This is actually good practice even if you aren't getting any funny noises. One should always switch the speakers (amps) off first and on last in any audio system.
