My old computer went kerplooey (motherboard fried) and so I've gotten a new one. Since the hardware is different, I know I can't just slide my old hard drive in, but I'd like to keep my /home directory. My old computer ran Hardy.
Can I install Intrepid on the new computer and replace the /home directory with the /home directory from my Hardy machine, or is there anything version-specific in /home?
Also, will this keep most of my settings? I don't mind tinkering around a little bit, but it took a lot of work to get some things like my mouse/keyboard working on Hardy. I know a lot of things work out-of-the-box on Intrepid, but I'd rather not lose anything I don't have to!
