Unhappy how do I install Suse 11.1 over Suse 10.2 without reformatting drives/


I am currently running Suse 10.2. I want to upgrade to 11.1, but the ISO tries to re-partition and re-format my drives which will wipe out all my data. I can't find any option that lets me avoid the re-partition and reformat problem.HHHELP!

During the installation process you should encounter the Suggested Partitioning page, which is just a proposal. From there you should see a Create Custom Partition Setup, or something similar. Then you can reassign the mount points to existing partitions without formatting the partition itself.
