    Reinstall gutsy after hardy upgrade?

    Hi everyone!

    I would like to know what's the best way to downgrade from Hardy (official release) after an upgrade from the alternate install CD? I want to do a fresh install of Gutsy, but I have my /home + ~/Pictures + ~/Music on 3 other partitions. There is a lot of hidden folders in ~/ so is it safe to just reinstall Gutsy into the root directory, which means the hidden folders will still exist? Or should I delete them first?

    If you're wondering why? Because..
    There are some things in Hardy which don't work for me..
    1. My wireless doesn't detect any networks & no LED
    (even on LiveCD and downgrading -- installing network-manager_0.6.6-0ubuntu1_i386.deb -- doesn't work)
    2. Many icon themes don't seem to work anymore (even on LiveCD)
    3. My usb drive doesn't automount
    (haven't tried on LiveCD),
    ("sudo modprobe -r ehci_hcd" and "lsusb" don't work)
    (there is no usefree option in gconf -> system > storage > default_options > vfat)

    I have given up trying to fix these. I'll wait until Hardy becomes more stable.
