Run (as root) diskdrake in expert mode; 
find your /home or ~ partition on the HD, choose Mount point, give it a name 
like /home/MyOtherHome and mount it; you may have to run (again as root) a 
chown -r mylogn:mylogin /home/MyOtherHome to be able to access it
(and remember to chown it back when finished, to access it in ML)
            A real patriot is the fellow who gets a parking ticket
                     and rejoices that the system works.
