    Normally there is nothing in in /root that you need. Unless you have made some sort of special use of it.. Normally it just holds default settings of the root account like your home holds setting of your own account..

    What about browser bookmarks and passwords?

    If you logon to a desktop as root, the configs and data land in /root. But don't do that.
    Being logged in as your user puts the configs and data in your homedir.

    Browser stuff is in YOUR home not root. Unless you log in as root to a GUI which is a very very bad idea. Don't do that!!!!

    I use the browser in both my userid and in root, so I have browser stuff in both /root and /home/~foo. Is there anything in /root that I should not retain?

    BTW, what's wrong with running, e.g., yast in a GUI? I understand about running bread and butter work elsewhere.
