Look at the hack that was used to make root login available in Fedora 10 and apply it to Fedora 11 Beta, it should work, if it does not post here and someone may help.  You will always get the responses that running as root is not advised and that the developers disabled it for a reason.  You are on your own and all that.  Be prepared!

Try one of the fedora beta cd's first, but if you don't get nowhere, then try :

Gparted LiveCD (has ext4 support now) 
http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php
or
SystemRescueCD also has ext4 support
http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

to format your /home partition.  Remember to back up your data first so that you will not be left out or lose anything valueable in the process.  
Sorry did not read the part where it is backed up in /opt :)
