Move /home to another HD?

I have a very slow system. One problem is that the the HD is small -- 10 
GB -- and nearly full.

I have an extra HD on my Windows machine that I use only for backups. If 
I moved the extra HD to my Ubuntu/Kubuntu machine could I move just my 
/home folder to the second HD and use the first HD just for the 
operating system and applications, e.g., so that data files are 
routinely opened from and saved to the second HD, without my having to 
constantly be navigating to and from it?

This is a stop-gap while I decide whether to go to the trouble of 
upgrading my hardware -- new graphics/video processor, more RAM, larger 
HD [which would be rendered unnecessary if the above is possible] -- or 
buy a new machine with Ubuntu/Kubuntu already installed, and until I 
make sure that my ducks are lined up financially.
