Moving /home to a new partition
I would like to move my /home to an empty unmounted partition. I am using the latest Mandriva software. The partition that /home is in is 92% full.
Right now my /home is in the / directory. If I use Mandriva's partition software and simply tell it to mount the empty partition at /home or even /home/jon, which is my personal directory, will the files be moved to the new partition safely without fouling anything up, leaving my / reduced in size?
