    @ Oldfred

    Is the line with the > < what I need to insert? Do I need to save or backup anything first?

    I might change a couple of settings. Just use defaults and 0 2 not 0 1.

    UUID=3d34262b-e98a-441c-bc7a-e3a3989d1378 /home ext3 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 2


    sudo cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.backup
    gksudo gedit /etc/fstab
    # Anytime you edit fstab always do this before rebooting. If no errors it just remounts everything, but if errors you have to fix before rebooting or you may not be able to, Make sure you have partition unmounted if previously mounted when creating new mounts:
    sudo mount -a

    You still will have your old (was new) home folder in / (root). If you made any user settings inside your new install, you may want to copy them into your /home. You eventually want to houseclean out the /home/{yourname} folder.

    @ oldfred

    Modifying Fstab was the solution I believe! Can I now download & install Google & Evolution and it should pick up my user data from the /home folder (ie existing Bookmarks, address book)?

    I really appreciate your assistance Fred. Thanks a lot.....

    Generally applications settings are in /home, so just reinstalling an application will find the previous settings. Most will upgrade ok.
