I want to upgrade from 7.10 to 8.04 using the live disks as my bandwidth is limited.

If I copy /home to a USB key and then to the new system would this work? Of cause I will loose any installed applications.

You can do this:

To upgrade you need the Alternate CD:

If you want to do a clean install; you can use a Live CD
