[ubuntu-uk] Home folder

I use a Linux only machine with two fairly large hard drives.  Ubuntu is 
installed on one and Kubuntu on the other.  On both distros I have 
separate partitions for my home folders.  I mainly use Ubuntu.  A couple 
of months ago the network/internet capability disappeared from Kubuntu 
and I was unable to fix it.  Recently I decided that I would upgrade 
Kubuntu to 8.04 even though my experience on my laptop with Ubuntu has 
not been 100% successful.  My thinking was that I would at least solve 
the network/internet problem.  So I reinstalled Kubuntu 7.10 and 
upgraded via Adept.  It seems to have gone pretty well except that I was 
obviously not paying enough attention during the partitioning dialogue.  
I have not lost the data on the separate partition but what used to be 
my home folder is now only seen as a separate drive.

Is there any way I can change the situation so that it is recognised as 
the normal Home folder?
