Thank you much, Wolfman. 8-)

I'm saving a full system backup on my external drive right after posting this before using the DVD I just burned with Zorin on it for my laptop.

I will be trying this out soon. I can see how it is good to have /home in a separate partition, but I don't have a ton of space. Are there some guidelines on how much space to reserve for root? I am guessing that /home has my documents, etc., but if I install programs, I would think that those files will be in the partition containing root. If this is correct, then what would be a good size to reserve for root?

Hi, I usually 'plump' for 30 Gb (or 30000 in the space that GParted asks when sizing) ;)

Thanks wolfman, I`ll give it a go. Do I boot my system with the Zorin 9 disk in the cd drive or boot into Zorin 8 and run the Zorin 9 disk then? (or doesnt it matter?)

Hi,

boot directly from the OS disk you want to install, in your case Zorin OS 9!. :D

Hi Stephanie,

the important part is NOT TO FORMAT YOUR HOME FOLDER!, that is basically what the guide is for, saving all your data and settings!. :D
