I maintain a linux system in my home ( RED HAT LINUX 8.0). There are
three users in the system. There are only three partitions in the
system: /bin, / and /swap. Everybody use the Gnome or KDE desktop
environment and use there own home directory to save their works.
I want to upgrade my system to RED HAT LINUX 9.0. I have decided to
carry on a full installation of RED HAT LINUX 9.0 after formatting the
partitions. Then I will copy the individual home directory of the
users which I regularly backup in CD-R. Will it work ? Will any user
lose their works or his/her settings ?
