FC5 doesn't start up right.

starting over I guess is probably the easiest.  I did the upgrade via
the dvd I downloaded.  I did expect the upgrade to fix the problems I
was having but apparently they just upgraded them.  :)  I would like to
keep my web, ftp, vnc, samba config files.  They shouldn't cause a
problem correct?  What else would I possible want to keep?

/dev/hda2              20G  3.2G   16G  18% /usr/local

Can I keep /mnt... and /home when I do the fresh install?  I can just
choose not to format that correct?
