Re: 12.10 hangs on boot. Windows 7 dual boot machine
Thats what I do. I just install my Ubuntu to 20GB partition as /. (Which means my / and /home is one). I install all my DATA on separate partition formatted with ext4. When browsing your "Home" hit Ctrl+H, it will reveal all your hidden dot (.)folders and files. These hidden files and folders save your per application preferences.

I find reconfiguring all over again to be fun. Only the first time it will be a pain, then you know what you want and how you want it... you can customize it in less than a few minutes. Do make a note of oldfred's last link on what to back up.
