Installing 3.3.1 over 3.3 over old 2004.06 home folders should work, I had to delete users *but not the users data* and then add new users with same users names and other details if any, this picked up the old home folders fine.
I tried to fix the permissions, users GID number and other problems that making multi users with 3.3 caused, and figured life was too short for that. Especially when 3.3.1 doesn't have that problem. Plus 3.3.1 fixes networking devices control problems in Mepis OS Center.
If your home folder permissions are still mucked up after all that, 2 options,
a) fix permisions, etc.
b) clean install and copy users doc's and mail back - mail client should pick up users mail, re-add users using exact old users name and other details if any.
