Change partitions and reinstall UBUNTU
What I would like to do is reinstall Ubuntu in sda3, move /home to sda4 and clear out the rest of the disk except for Windows XP. How do I reinstall and then link the new install to the /home already existing? How do I also do the reinstall and get the Grub to use the new install instead of the old one? When I do the reinstall do I need to create a new /swap? I have looked and some of it makes sense but it is the linking of new and old files that I find confusing.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give me.
Well if you try what you are proposing you will run into the problem that you can only have 4 primary partitions and one of them will contain all the extended partitions.
Backup your /home partition and start over using extended partitions is my advicefree/libre/open software for the people by the people
