When I tried that I found that the hidden files were then retained which with a 
new release may not be what one wants (as I see it not being that IT savvy). I 
was wondering if having /home was better left on a 'system partition' and all 
the work files etc put on another (e.g. on my 500 gb disk, system partition 
100gb and the rest 400gb). It means mounting that partition but does mean the 
system and config files are all in one place.

No one else has mentioned this so I am assuming I am wrong but I'd be grateful 
if someone could suggest the best two partition setup. I used to have two hard 
drives on my old machine - one system and the other files.
