Re: reinstalling and using manual partitions
when you select the manual option of the install process you are going to have to select each partition (/, /home, /boot) and click Edit. Then you will select Use as (filesystem) & from the mount point drop down box select the appropriate mountpoint for each partition, i.e. / for root partition, /home for home partition and /boot for boot partition. For swap highlight the swap partition and make sure use as is set to linux-swap. If you already have data on the newly created /home DO NOT TICK the format box as you will wipe it! Then proceed with the install.

The others you can leave in /. Just make it big enough (10-20 GB)
