mount points for partitions

I tried to upgrade redhat 8 to fedora 3. It failed , probablly due to disk space ( there is only one disk with 6g capacity and 2g free). So I tried to re-install RH8 but don't want to wipe out some user info. Using DRUID I see the following :

Partition type Mount point
-------------- -------------
Linux nati

I only set the mount point for ext3 to / and continue with the install. It failed.
What mount points should be set for these partitions?
I would like to put /home in a separate partition. What should I do?

Swap = /swap
ext3 = /root
linux nati = /boot
