I would like to upgrade my ubuntu Karmic Koala to the latest version, but would like to first create a separate partition for /home, then migrate my home directory to that partition. Any help in accomplishing this would be helpful.
Thanks,
Cygnis1

I know you can create and manipulate partitions with Gparted, but I'm not sure about migrating your existing /home to a new home partition :-s
