Whe I upgraded one of my boxes from woody to sarge, I was happy I had
a separate /home.

What I did was make a copy of / (without /home) on another partition,
making sure both were bootable, and then upgraded the copy.  The
upgrade failed for reasons not really relevant here,
and I was still able to boo the original woody system.

Once I successfully upgraded (at least to the point where sarge would
run) I then had a period of parallel operation.  If something I relied
on didn't work in sarge, I could reboot to woody to get things working
while I meditated on a fix.
