thanks for answering Lance,

I was minded not to reply, but I guess I should. I have run multiple ubuntu
/ lubuntu installs on an extended partition of my own Hard Drive since
9.10. Never has one tried to delete everything, it offers the choice of do
want me to take over everything, live with other systems or do as you wish
on your crazy system. You simply tell it what you want the installer to do.
