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.

I did this on my EEEPC 900. But not on Easy Peasy. My thread with screenshots.

I could point you to a lot of Ubuntu links if you prefer that instead.
