On my last upgrade from 10.3 to 11.0, Suse installed the 10.3 root directory
into my home directory, which I never noticed because I don't go there, until
a few days ago when I decided to upgrade from 11.0 to 11.1. As I was
deleting these directories, I accidently deleted my home directory. I don't
keep much there, but linux and its apps do. Is there a recovery.

Yep. Just recover them from your back ups.
Also I have OOo files in another directory, but I don't know which partition.

Is there a way to:
1) Find out which partition a file is in.
2) Copy these files from disk to a usb stick drive while in the "live" mode?

Take a look at the path to the file. Then compare that with the
contents of /etc/fstab to find the top directory of that path.
