I know I sound foolish, but this is a Beginner's Forum anyway right?

Recently, Ubuntu 7.10 crashed on me and is giving me error messages when I try to load it. I HAVE set up a /home partition. And I want to install Ubuntu 8.04. I just don't know exactly how to go about doing that without formating my /home partition. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.Since you did The Right Thing by setting up your /home as a separate partition, you will have no trouble. Just be sure to manually set up your partitions during installation and tell the installer NOT to format the one that contains /home.
