1) how the *bleep* do I get at the memoryon a Lemur Ultrathin? I've taken out all the external screws, the battery, the HDD but something is still catching and preventing me from disassembling the thing (it seems to be caught somewhere near the middle of the mother board or toward the back).
2) assuming I successfully swap the memory how to I start the process of getting the OS upgrade completed if I don't have a Kernel to select in GRUB? I'm hoping I don't lose my home dir since I (stupidly) didn't finish backing up some data so I'm not real keen on doing a fresh install.
quick update: figured out how to replace RAM (Damn you easy to remove keyboard!)
Currently running memtest 4.2 that I assume, based on this discussion, comes from ubuntu. I do not have a cdrom on my machine so..... suggestions?

If I do a fresh install of 12.10 is there some way to prevent an overwrite of /home
Can I run a live version, access the HDD /home data get if off and bring it back later?
finally, if I were to setup a /home partition (assuming I have to a fresh install) how much space would you recommend for the rest of the system on the HDD.

1: select other (manual) and install on the same / partition without formatting and the original /home will be untouched but have to recreate my original user account names and passwords
2: use bootrepair to attempt to correct the grub not having the option of booting into 12.10
Which approach woud you suggest I choose if my primary concern is keeping and accessing my original /home directory.
I decided to try the grub repair first since the initial install info displayed by the livedisc suggested the 12.10 upgrade appeared successful.
I followed the instructions from the url below, selected the recommended options and things appear to be correct. Account info remains, nothing to reinstall or initialize.
