When I installed FC4, I tried to partition several file systems but
failed.  The artitioner didn't let me do it so I let it do what it
wanted...  I have now one LVM.  So... you are saying that if I
backup /home, do a fresh install and restore the /home backup I should
be OK? I'll lose those in /etc (e.g., php.ini) and also my httpd.conf.
How about my ADSL config?  
I think I'll buy another disk (although my current 250GB should have
been enough for the next few years for a dual-boot) provided that the
installer supports a /dev/sdb (saw some notes that there are problems
there).

P.S.  Why are things always moved around?  I am going crazy enough
between my home FC4, my production server SUSE 9 end test server SUSE
10...
