Moving /home to its own partition.

Suppose Debian was installed on hda with only two partitions, swap and / and you have accumulated much data in /home.

Later, you add another hard drive, hdb, and decided to place swap and a separate /home partition on this new drive while keeping / on the original hda.

How would you create new swap and /home partitions om hdb so Debian would use these instead of the original /home and swap?

Additionally, how could you best utilize the space gained by transferring data from the original /home to the new /home partition?
