Hi,
    I would like to migrate to Pardus without losing all my existing set up.

 My hard disc is partioned as follows:-

PClos root 12GB/swap 3.9GB/Home 449Gb

So, using "advanced" if I set it up I to just format root and swap will I retain My home folder?

and will all my existing programs run correctly ?

It should, but I would strongly advise making a backup just in case anything goes wrong. There might be issues with ownership and group,  I don't know enough about PClos to know how it handles users & groups.

That depends -- scripts should be just fine, c & fortran code will probably be OK, c++ might need to be recompiled & relinked depending on whether your previous distro had similar versions of the c++ libraries. (Of course if your previous distro was 64-bit then any compiled code will need recompiling).

I guess one other thing I should add is that the package selection is pretty good though less comprehensive than in the Debian/Ubuntu family. Given the fact that Pardus is funded by the Turkish research funding agency, it not surprising that it's strongest in the scientific & office software, but less so in games and other recreational programs.

Hmmm, installed OK in that I haven't lost anything . I think I used the wrong selection for the "home" folder when partioning everthing has gone into a partion called ARCHIVE and none of the programs work.
Should I have selected the option "files"?

Did you use "Creating User partition" of the Installing Pardus 2009 Wiki  

Where can I find the option
Should I have selected the option "files"?
