mandrake 8.1 to 8.2 upgrade help


this is my system status
[root@eugene tmp]# df
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda5 965M 331M 605M 36% /
/dev/hda7 15M 3.4M 11M 24% /boot
/dev/hda10 3.1G 2.2G 785M 74% /home
/dev/hda9 5.9G 2.0G 3.6G 35% /usr
/dev/hda8 3.7G 2.1G 1.4G 59% /home/eugene/data
/dev/hda1 4.4G 3.9G 550M 88% /mnt/windows

i think i'm gonna repartition /usr/local too..

after that,
i'd like to upgrade to 8.2 as clean as possible..
this is my first time upgrading..
will i be able to keep all my programs and setting
if i have seperate /home /usr/local partitions?

thank you for any comment..~

Well, I am not sure, but when you put in the Mandy 8.2 disc, it asks if you want to: install; upgrade; upgrade packages only

If you select packages only, that might work? Good luck
