How to preserve "My Documents" while migrating from XP to Linux (Fedora)?
 
Hi, here is what i want to do and have as a result:
  1. Install Linux (Fedora) on a laptop, that has XP right now (removing XP completely).
  2. Preserve the contents of "My Documents" on the same hdd while installing linux on my laptop (external hdd unavailable)
  3. The installed Linux to use full hdd space, contents of "My Documents" to be in /home, and have no leftover partition, that was used while migrating. It would be nice to have a regular hdd scheme after all of that.
Thank you.

reply migrating from xp to fedora
 
If i understood right u have only one partition and want to completely remove Xp and install fedora with data of my documents...
I haven't used fedora since last year i am on mint right now..
In mint installer there is a option of importing data of my document of Xp..
u can try that..

Exactly my point. Unfortunately, Mint has problems with my modem, Fedora works just fine.

keep docs
 
Why make such hard work of it? Put docs on a pen drive/cd/slave drive and re-introduce it later. A fat file system will work on just about owt, ie, use that on the pen drive.
