I recently performed a clean install of Fedora 12 on my Sager 8890.
I backed up my /home dir beforehand using rsync without any problems to an external 320G USB drive.
With F12 installed, I proceeded to restore my /home dir using rsync again.
The script works fine--it's been tested through previous installs without issue.
