How do I tell which partition is CURRENTLY my ROOT, and HOME partitions?

I chose 'Specify partitions manually', Install to the partition that NOW has Ubuntu, format to ext4,

BUT...

what is my current Mount Point? '/' ? '/boot' ? '/home' ?

I'm trying to keep the GRUB loader as it is now...

you need to know that info before you start the install. The installer will not tell you any of that. Once you know what your / is, /home is etc (such as /home is sda2 and / is sda1) then you can highlight those partitions and use the window in your screenshot to configure the new install like this:

for /
Use as: ext3 or ext4
tick the format box
mount point : use the drop down box to select /

for /home
Use as : ext3 or ext4
leave format box unticked or you will format your /home partition and lose all data
mount point : use drop down box to select /home

Again you need to know which partition is what prior to using the partitioner when installing or you may experience data loss.

Note: Above I only used sda1 and sda2 as examples, I was not referring to your partition table in the screenshot!

you need to know that info before you start the install. !

So if I don't know now, is there any way to find out?

So if I don't know now, is there any way to find out?

If you currently have a working Ubuntu on your machine do this: Let's get a better look at your setup & boot process. Boot into Ubuntu. Come back here and use the link in my signature to download the Boot Info Script to the desktop. Once on desktop open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and run this command
sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh This will create a RESULTS.txt file on the desktop. Paste the entire contents of that file back here. Once pasted highlight all text and click the # sign on the toolbar to place code tags around the text.

If you don't currently have a working Ubuntu installed then do this: Let's get a better look at your setup & boot process. Boot the Ubuntu Live CD/USB. Choose "try ubuntu without any changes", when the desktop loads come back here and use the link in my signature to download the Boot Info Script to the desktop. Once on desktop open a terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and run this command
sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh This will create a RESULTS.txt file on the desktop. Paste the entire contents of that file back here. Once pasted highlight all text and click the # sign on the toolbar to place code tags around the text.

That will give us plenty of info about your setup.

Not sure if this info tells me what my new partition assignments will be...

Between the pic & the script output this is what I see:
sda1-XP
sda2-Ubuntu 9.04
sda3- extended: sda5-unknown sda6-swap sda8-unknown
sda4-Fedora

sdb1-Vista
sdb2-Vista
sdb3-extended: sdb5-pclinux
sdb4- ext3 storage

So if you are installing karmic I would put it over sda2 9.04. So sda2 will be / mountpoint. Tick the format box so it formats sda2 prior to installing. You don't need any separate /boot etc partitions. They will be included in sda2

sdb4 appears to be a data partition. You can leave that be. or if you want to convert it to a separate /home partition you can highlight that partition and right click->change. In the window that appears DO NOT tick the format box & choose mount point /home
This will auto mount that partition as /home every time you boot

Or you can leave it alone and mount it when you need to. This will be better if you intend to share that partition between all the Linux OSs.

Great - thanks!

Do they have 'Thanks' scores in this forum? I'm not seeing it???


Edit:
What info defined sda2 as my root partition, as well as 'home'?
And sda4 I think is a wiped SuSE 11.1 install... That would make it look like a 'data' partition?

"There were no users or operating systems suitable for importing from."

No problem - I've backed up the partition, but why IS this? Perhaps because I'm going from 32 bit to 64 bit?

AND,
step 8 - it's preparing 2 partitions as swap...

That's because you have sda6 and sda7 as swap. It aiuto detects existing swap partitions and configures them for use with the new installation.
