Is there a way to back up a fresh install so you can go back to it if you screw up your system? Like adding another partition with the ubuntu image all ready loaded?

I reinstalled Ubuntu no long ago.

I simply copied my /Home folder and pasted it on my memory stick.
Reinstalled Ubuntu and replaced my /Home folder with the one i copied

Most of my settings werre restored.

So i suggest this if you need to reinstall this, others will suggest differently like having your /Home on a seperate partition entirely.

I have my /home on a separate partition. I would almost think you would have to have a duel boot system that uses the same /home folder. I, as yet, haven't tried a duel boot system. When I switched from XP, it was cold turkey all the way
