Format oneother partition and mount it; with rsync you can copy all file 
  present in /home to the new partition (check with "who" if there are 
some users log on). After copy, you can change (adding) mount istruction 
for new partition in your /etc/fstab file, move /home directory in 
/home-old and create new directory /home for the mount-pointer ad mount 
new partition, by mount -a  (or mount /dev/hdxx /home).
