Kyrre, How large is your /var slice? If it's large enough to fit /home (or at least the files you'd like to save), maybe try booting into single-user mode, mount /usr and /var, wipe out /var, copy the files from /usr/home to /var, and just remember to document what slice /var was. Then you could just reinstall the base system around it using a 6.1-RELEASE CD, no?

Thanks for the tip of having /home as a seperate slice though, I'll treasure it for the rest of my days!
