What is the effect on the /usr partition when
reinstalling over an installation?

I suffered a kernel panic that wiped my MBR; I'd like
to simply reinstall with the same partition/slice
values - will my /usr partition and the data therein
still be accessible after reinstallation?

Hi Rishi!
The effect is that the installer will detect and offer you to
use your current partitioning scheme and install the sets which you choose over the current ones, overlapping some files.
It's wiser to boot in single mode with rescue CD and reinstall the MBR, if you wish to preserve data. Otherwise, boot with rescue, backup and reinstall from scratch.
Take care!
