Otherwise, don't write the new partition table and keep everything you want to keep, only overwriting what you don't need. For example, if you have a separate /home partition you want to keep, only make new filesystems on the partitions you want to wipe out. Keep /home as it is and mount it during the installation so that you can see it. You will still need to make the new user as I describe. Of course if you're trying to keep both operating systems on the same drive, both the Linux you have and TalkingArch, things get much more complicated, as you will need to resize partitions and filesystems and mess with the boot loader. In this case, you may be better off installing to a USB drive or similar, which can be done fairly easily just following my tutorial, only changing the device name to correspond to the drive where you want TalkingArch. Your only potential problem then will be figuring out how to make your specific computer boot from USB. Hope it helps.
