And this is one of the main reasons I always keep my home directory on a 
separate partition. During the installation I do not touch that 
partition at all  (except for specifying the mount point) and create my 
users in the same order as they were created in the original install (to 
have the same uid's). The advice to be cautious and have a backup of 
home still holds though.
