MAYA will see a drive Label "/home" and save every thing to my home folder.
sudo mkdir /mnt/root /mnt/newhome
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/root
sudo mount /dev/sdb3 /mnt/newhome
sudo rsync -vaxHAX /mnt/root/home/ /mnt/newhome/
gksudo gedit /mnt/root/etc/fstab

commands that you suggest it look like i am moving some files in the command line, I take it that I wont have to re-install unless i screw up.
Would it matter if there is little syncing going on? I have nothing in the home folder yet.
What is UUID? And where can I look that up? I know it pertains to the HHD,
Mintybits, if I end up re-installing could I assign the home folder like cwsnyder suggested?
Help me! MintyBits Help me! YOUR MY ONLY HOPE

I would do this under the "disk utility" program and
"Edit File system Label" Change the OS partition on
64G SSD from "file system" to "/ partition"
Do I leave the Swap and Extended as they are?
HDD will be 95% "/home" with 5% swap
something like this? did i get it right?
and all this is labels and definitions for Mint?

I have made an installation on my Latitude DELL D510. It is Mint petra cinnamon ed.
Now I would like to part my 34 GB dis ( aprox. 18-20 GB for root and the rest for /home).
I use GPARTED in grafik mode
But the partitons are locked and I am not allowed to part it. I have made an LMV when I installeed the OS.
Can anyone help me?
