Moving/using new /home partition

I just installed a new copy of RH73. I already have another RH (72).

Each has its own /home . However, it would be great if I can use
a new partition and make it a common /home, so that it is loaded
in both the installations. How to do it?

Heres' my partition map


Here is what I think I should do.
1. In both RHs, change /etc/fstab, and make /home point to hda4
2. mv the existing partitions to hda4
3. restart.
Will it work?
