My install was all through updates. I never did a clean install. I understand a clean install is the way to go as I will get Grub2 and ext4. Is there a simple set of code for backing up my system to a dvd then installing it over the fresh install? Would tarballing the home directory to a dvd be enough? I have already burned all the photo's I had onto a disk. I hate to ask, but there are so many different posts about this that I couldn't figger out which is best.
