You can also do a fresh install if you don't have a separate home 
partition. At the partitioning option use the manual partitioning and 
use the current root partition. Keep the file system type as it is and 
select not to format the partition. Then the installer will overwrite 
only the system directories but not /home (and maybe some others which I 
don't remember).
