I bought a new pc and successfully put the /home and / on separate hard drives,,,when i copied over my entire /home from my old pc and wow it worked beautifully
NOW my question when Juanty comes out if i ugrade how do i make sure the /home will stay on the seperate hard drive and can i do a clean install. Which is why i separated the /home to begin with.
SOOOOO what is the procedure to make this adventure work???????????????

On a clean install when you get to the partitioning section (part 4) you will designate your existing /home but DO NOT format it. There is a tick box I think, but in any case you have a choice of formatting it or not - so just be sure formatting isn't selected. Then it will be preserved.

Yes, if you have a separate /home you would format the / partition for a clean install.
