Moving /home Directory?


I did a hard drive install of Damn Small Linux.

I created a partition on install for my /home directory and I am wanting to move my current /home over to it.
My problem is I am logged in as dsl and it says the information is busy.
I have tried the command "init 1", but it still tells me the files are busy and cannot be moved.

What would be the best method of doing this?
