Moving the /Home Partition, Permission Issues.

I'm getting ready to install 10.4 (8.04 currently), and I need to 
rearrange some partitions in preparation.

I need to move my /Home partition out of the way temporarily and the 
only place I have to move it to is an NTFS drive that can't be changed. 
I can handle all of the repartitioning with GParted without a problem, 
but I'm weak when it comes to Linux file/folder permission issues.

Are there issues here? How do I do this safely?
If you can point me to a guide, that would be great. The more 
cookbookish the better.
