 Well, generally if you're doing an install and have a partition you don't
 wan't the installer to mess with, not specifiying it as /home and just
 let it do the install with home on the / partition will ensure taht
 your data isn't damaged. Then afterward just edit the fstab and remount
 /home onto your old home partition.
