Yes, I want to do a live "in place" migration. My main concern is to 
preserve the home partition. I don't care about the software and rpm's. 
SO is it 100% safe to leave the home partition untouch during the 
installation will preserve the whole /home partition and data in it?

Thank you so much for your support.
