And if that's preferable, will it install on a free section in another 
disk on the same machine without messing up the existing installation 
and have the the boot procedure now offer the Windows / Hardy / Intrepid 
options, assuming that area is correctly partitioned with gparted etc? 
Sounds like a tall order tho'.

And what, in addition to backing up /home would be advisable to save? In 
either event...

Gets messier by the minute doesn't it.
