switching distros without loosing data
I have been using PCLinuxOS for a while now, but i am not very plased with it, so i decided to change the distro/os
I would like to know if it is possible to keep my home folder data. I could and will simply back it up by copying it to another partition or simply writeing it on dvdrw. but it would be a lot easier if i could use the same home tree i already have.
If something like that is possible i am also interested would my tbird accounts and email loud into new tbird automaticly, or would/could i load them afterwards.
I am not quite sure wich distro to install... my top choises are Fedora8, Ubuntu or FreeBSD
