I'd agree with Craig. When I switched from F7 to F8 in December, I wrote
all 6+ Gb of my /home directory from F7 to my XP partition, and after
clean install of F8 wrote everything back to it. It took about 25
minutes either way, and I haven't noticed anything odd so far - meaning
my /home directory. ntfs-3g just works(tm)...
