partition formatted on each new installation?
When reinstalling linux (suse 9), is the partition completely reformatted, or are the files just overwritten? I have reinstalled linux S9 several times in the past few weeks and each time is with different results. On two installations, I have been unable to restart KDE by using ctrl-alt-bck (posted in another thread). Other installations have had their own quirks. I'm wondering if any problems from a previous installation carry over to a new installation.
I know this sounds silly, but as one who has not yet been fully weaned from windows, silliness is what I have come to expect. forgive me.
