In that case, yes, u can retain /home. At install time choose the manual partition method (it may be under advanced tab when partition comes up), give mount point of /home to /dev/hdb1, and / to other, and do NOT format hdb1.
In fact I think at partition time there is an option to keep current partitions. Use that option
As always, make a backup of any critical data on /home - theres always the risk something might go wrong.
