How to install Fedora 9 replacing Suse 11.0

Hi everyone,
I have been using OpenSUSE 11.0 for a while
but after i was messing around with my system and external monitor, everything seems not working properly or well.
So i decided to try Fedora 9 with dual booting Windows XP Home

How do i install Fedora without losing any of my data in the linux partition?

Thanks in advance!

If you want to save data in your /home directory and it's not on a seperate partition you'll need some method of backing it up (external hard drive or burn to CD/DVD). If it's on its own partition you need to make sure you don't format the partition during the installation.


dual boot, fedora, open, suse
