<--Total n00b. Need some advice.
So I made the decision to leave Windows for good. Yay, me.
I installed Kubuntu (hated KDE), installed Ubuntu (meh, needed MP3 codecs and stuff)
and then Mint. I like Mint. :)
Anyhow, the only thing holding me back was Gaming. When I installed Ubuntu, I decided
to give Wine a go and try to get Lord of the Rings Online running... and did it on the first
try. Yay, me again. So then I decided to try Mint and here I am.
I did some reading up and found that many users create multiple partitions upon install
so that if they decide to wipe and re-install, those folders are still intact and the settings and
installed programs are not lost. I am not, however, seeing how to accomplish this. I have certain
things I will want for the forseeable future, namely my working Lord of the Rings install and
current visual setup. How I can either re-install so that if I install again later my stuff is still there,
or backup my current settings to protect them and make it easier to implement after a re-install?
