And just how do you do that?  The last time I tried to save /home, anaconda 
would not proceed until I checked the format it box.  As I'm an alpha test 
site for amanda, the recovery was doable and was done, but what kind of 
twisted reasoning gives anaconda the right to demand I destroy my data?
I usually just install with no separate filesystem for /home (i.e. it's part of /) and then once the install is complete I update /etc/fstab to mount my old /home filesystem on the new installation.
