Confused about a clean install
I have a Ratel Value and a Starling Net Book. I am planning on doing a clean install of 10.04 on both machines.
My home directory is on a separate device (sda3). Is there a way to do the install without wiping out my home directory?
The instructions sound like /home will be wiped along with / even though they are on separate devices.
I was planning on backing up /home, of course, just to be safe, but I do not understand why it has to be deleted to install the new system or am I misinterpreting the instructions.
Also, should I backup anything else?
Thanks for ny help
