Install ubuntu linux on existing fedora partition
I have a fedora system which has a huge /storage (spanning multiple disk on LVM/JFS) partition and /home folder with lot of media file/scripts.
I am planning to switch to ubuntu. I don't have disk space elsewhere to shift the /storage partition somewhere else before switch. So is it possible to leave the storage (I can copy the contents of /home to /storage and then copy back after install) partition intact and install ubuntu by deleting other partitions.
If yes, step by step instructions will be helpful.
One more question: my existing system is 32 bit single core. But I plan to install 64 bit smp ubuntu on upgraded machine. Media files and scripts by themseleves would not be a issue. But is filesystem also 32bit/64bit ?? i.e. once I install ubuntu, will existing /storage partition still be okay after mounting. Or do I need to upgrade filesystem too (meaning shifting the files out to different system somehow and reformatting/resizing the disk with new filesystem).
