I am trying to reinstall ubuntu 10.04 onto my laptop.
Question: Do I need to worry about the / partition when I install
i.e. should I backup / to my external hard drive -or- will the reinstall just renew the contents of / ?
During this reinstallation I am moving the / partition to a location that will allow me to expand its size. I am doing this via ubuntu literature very carefully. is there anything I should be aware of before I attempt this?
Any comments appreciated
