[Grml] grml2hd with a preexisting partition

Hi list,
I just discovered Grml recently.  I want to install it on my laptop's
hard drive, using grml2hd.
The laptop already runs Slackware 11.0.
I chose a really lousy partitioning scheme when I installed Slackware:
/dev/hda1, /boot, approx 40Mb
/dev/hda2, swap, approx 512 Mb
/dev/hda3, /, the remaining 19.5 Gb

I don't want to get rid of /home when I install Grml, because it holds
several gigabytes of assorted files.
Is it possible to make grml2hd install to /dev/hda3 without destroying

PS, this is a good argument for having separate / and /home partitions; wish
I had done that on the laptop!
