Post help me, need to move carpets to a SDHC to avoid space problems


In my Asus notebook I installed easypeasy, excelent distro, I have a SSD w/4g where I installed easypeasy, need to redirect "my documents" and some other carpets to a sdhc/8g . With this I want to avoid disk space problems on SSD, when running applications.
How can I do that ?

Thanks for help.

Takes some work and skill. Need symlinking skill and edit /etc/fstab skill plus use of terminal.

Code:
harry@Biker:/mnt/sdb1/home/harry$ sux

root@Biker:/mnt/sdb1/home/harry# blkid
/dev/sda1: LABEL="/" UUID="62f41c57-e269-42ea-b339-19a9ed8b266e" TYPE="ext2" 
/dev/sdb1: LABEL="/home" UUID="f496aeb2-996f-49ff-9f91-5552f385a465" TYPE="ext2" 
root@Biker:/mnt/sdb1/home/harry# cat /etc/fstab
# Pluggable devices are handled by uDev, they are not in fstab
/dev/sda1 / auto defaults,noatime 0 1

# Dynamic entries below

root@Biker:/mnt/sdb1/home/harry# df -h

tmpfs            64M  9.4M   55M  15% /media/ramdisk
root@Biker:/mnt/sdb1/home/harry#
I did this on my EEEPC 900. But not on Easy Peasy. My thread with screenshots.
