Hi Colin,

Actually yes, and I never realised how dumb it was until I read your
message. I just was used to formatting before installing, so I guess I
never gave it any thought.

So, what is supposed to happen if you do NOT check the format box? Is
everything but your /home destroyed, or is anything else kept? Probably
a dumb question, but I've never done it so I can't know.
