in-place clean installs (was Re: What is the consensus on the best partition scheme)

Please do tell us how you do this.  

I have an FC5 system with 4 200G disks and 2 logical volumes spread
over all 4 of them.  I need to figure out how to just nuke the fc5
bits while retaining the second volume group.

I was going to try to boot the install dvd, mount the volume 00 (say
on /mnt), mkdir /mnt/fc5 ; mv /mnt/* /mnt/fc5

Is this what you do?  Is there a better way?  Backing up ~800GB of
data is going to take one heck of a big pile of DVD's.
