That might not be a bad idea. That being said, I've been using linux since 
before RH stopped releasing free versions for home use and I have to say, I 
haven't had a real problem with it. OTOH, I almost always customize so I do 
NOT blow everything away and start from scratch. I have my "home" partition 
information almost from the very first linux install I ever did. Granted 
it's not on the same *drives* but the data is still there, due to having a 
separate partition for everything!
I can see both sides of this. I don't think it would hurt anything to have 
a *little* hand-holding by the installer, something to the effect of "If you 
don't want to blow everythign away and start from scratch, choose a 
different option" when you just accept the default. OTOH, I don't really 
want to turn Fedora into the "Microsoft" of linux where you don't have to 
expend any brain power to install!
