If you have /home on a separate partition, back it up, and do a fresh
install of Hardy; but select 'Manual partition', set up /root, swap,
and /home, but chose NOT to format /home.
Only problem with this is that some of your apps may have configuration
files in /home that won't be compatible with 8.04's older versions.
When an application complains, you can often fix this simply by renaming
the hidden configuration file in /home (they'll be folders with names
like .mozilla and .liferea_1.6 or whatever); a lot of common apps just
create a new configuration file in /home if there isn't one there already.
If you don't have a separate /home partition, back up your /home folder,
do a clean install, and restore any data you need from your old /home
Can't think of anything else. Some of the very experienced folk here
may have better ideas.
