Was this an install or upgrade?
Did you choose to format /home if it was a separate partition?
This was a complete install over an old system.
I didn't choose to install over home. Thinking back over now, i didn't choose
to format home. This would have been a problem because home was in a different
portion of the drive. So of course it would fail. So i'm thinking that the
default option should have been to format home...
no i didn't format home.
We don't make it in by default because it is not uncommon for people to
reinstall machines and we thought it
safer to not format the data they want to keep.
Sorry this wasn't clearer.
