[ubuntu-uk] Fresh install, multiple users, moving /home

I installed Dapper at Christmas, thinking I'd give myself plenty of time
to play with it until my XP was no longer supported - now I'm using it
full time. :)

I have two hard drives, originally one held Windows C:/ and D:/, and the
other my Windows backup E:/ drive. I put Dapper on the end of my D:
partition. Now I plan to do a fresh install of Feisty to replace the
entire second (E:/) drive, and move my old /home to that drive, then
increase its size.

There are three other users besides myself, who are all happy with
Ubuntu. So if I move the /home, will that automatically create those
users with the current passwords, or will I need to recreate them? (I'm
backing up the home partition in case of accidents!)

Or am I going completely the wrong way about this?
