The basic idea is correct, but the details can bring the operation to a
grinding halt ;-).

Move your old /usr out of the way and make a new empty /usr. Edit /etc/fstab
to add an entry thus:

	/dev/hdc1	/usr		ext2	defaults			0 0

Then run 'mount -a' (which mounts the filesystems listed in /etc/fstab).
Move /home into /usr and make a symlink from /usr/home to /home.
