Install Elive without format /home partition

I would like to know if you have been tray of install Elive in a debian previous installation.

I was traying of install Elive in my current partition table hda1 (/), hda6 (/home), hda8 (mnt/other) but Elive demand to format the /home partition. If you don`t select install /home partition, Elive create the /home inside the hda1 (of course), but after it, you can not to see the hda6 partition, only I can to see the hda8 partition without any problem.

I would like to know if somebody was traying a similar installation process.

Thanks in advance,

ok this is what u can do install elive without setting a home partition, this means on the / system your user account will go there, how after u install elive, edit /etc/fstab and add
"/dev/hda6 /home auto defaults, auto 0 2"
NOTE!!! while installing the user name and the password must be the same of the user name in hda6 ok. good luck.

PrinceAMD, thank you very much by your collaboration. Your indication works perfectly.

Of course, that considering that I had a gnome desktop previously installed in my debian, when I enter the /home with the username and password, the interface of Elive don't look the same as the default, but I imagine that in this point I'll need to do customization in the Enlightenment to have a similar default interface when you install from zero.
