You might run into a little weirdness doing that especially if you
install core 3 w/ selinix enabled. Also it is *highly* likely that
your gnome, mozilla, firefox (whatever) apps may not like the old
configuration files in /home/username. If it were me I'd just copy
anything I wanted to save from /home/* into another partition e.g.
/files, do a install of core 3 with its own /home, using /share to
store & access docs etc. from both core 2 & core 3. YMMV.
