Keeping the home partition is easy. Just choose to do the partitioning
manually, select /home as the mount point for your home partition and
that the data should be kept. I'm not sure how this works with the
livecd installer (because I haven't tried it), but the text based
installer on the alternate cd makes this fairly obvious.
