I think subject is quite old but some others users could to be interested

You have a fedora 17 and you have a home with an account name xxxx. You want to install fedora 18 to get a fresh install and keep your previous home.

If that is this case:

Your /home has is own partition ?

  • No -> copy data to another media temporarily
  • yes -> continue below

when installing fedora 18 check custom install set to format all partition except /home

continue installation

Once time fedora is installed it will ask to you to put a login set xxxx and that is done.

In brief put /home to a dedicated partition is a good thing.
