I've ordered an SSD (Cosair Force LX 128GB) I have a HDD (Seagate Barricuda 320GB 72RPM)

Im still building my Custom pc. i have to get a mobo, ram, cpu, and psu. so im still using my old Dell inspiron 537(s).

I was wondering if i can install ubuntu, gnome shell and google chrome and maybe some other programs on the SSD but put my home folder and games on my HDD. Is there a way to do that?


In order to have a separate home partition, set the mountpoint off the HDD as /home when you format it in the Ubuntu Setup.
