Is the 300Gb on a separate partition?  If so, then you should be able to 
just backup the root drive.  PLEASE NOTE - I am basing this solely off 
of my experience installing FC4 over FC1.  My LVM partition information 
was preserved, so all I had to do was remount those drives and all of my 
data was still there.
