Just now I made a fresh installation of Natty on my desktop. Earlier I was using Maverick with a separate home partition. While installing I selected / for maverick partition and selected nothing for earlier home. Now I noticed that earlier home is recognized as just another partition and a new home has been created. How can I set earlier home as home for natty?
