Will noodle allow you to preserve /home?

I've been running between distros so I keep /home as a seperate partition.  Wanted to check out arch again but the installer doesn't have an option to not format my /home partition.  Will noodle have this ability by any chance?

Would love to reinstall arch, but not at the expense of my /home directory.

Thx

Just add home manually to fstab after install process finished.

Ok, finally got around to it.  You all are right of course and it's well documented in the Install instructions.   It was not intuitive for me though.  You have to set swap, root, and then when asked about other non-root partitions you select your current /home, name it as such, but say 'No' when it asks are you sure.
