If you want to repartition your hard drive you'll have to use parted or

First make a backup of your /home directory in any other dir, just
like /var/mybackup

Once you have your fresh partition ready for /home edit /etc/fstab
and add a line like this

/dev/hda6       /home           ext3    defaults        0       2

Change hda6 for your new partition and ext3 for your chosen filesystem

Restore your /var/mybackup to /home and that's it, good luck
