I don't like it but thank you! :) . then you should give some thought to creating a partition for /home. such gives you ability to mount the partition as /home and not have to worry about losing, backing up /home. that is, you should keep /home backed up, but with it as it's own partition, you do not have to restore /home into a new install. like that better? :-) -- peace out.
