new install, select the drives you want, and it rocks.
You can select the partition with /home on it as the new /home, and do 
not format that partition.
As long as you do it as a new install it should work.
You also want to be sure you manually partition it, not automatic.

The complaint about an already existing partition with the label is 
something that should be filed on the fedora test mailing list and also 
as a bug if it refuses to install for you.

With RH8 and RH9 I had a similar situation, and it simply had one drive 
with / and one with /1 as the labels, so it worked for me with no problem.
