For many years my Fedora has been in one partition off the /. This list has convinced me that it makes real sense to put /boot and /home into their own partitions. Now I am thinking about doing that.

For /boot it needs no special connection to the main partition. It has all this in it's grub.conf and initrd files. All you need to do is retrain grub to goto the new partition. That is simple from a Rescue cd.

Now /home is different. It will be in a new partition and connected to the main F7 by /ect/fstab entry. Not sure what that will look like. Maybe like this if /home is in /dev/sda7 the entery in fstab would be:

/dev/sda7         /home        ext3      defaults      0  0

   Is any of this correct?

The numbers at the end would normally be 1  2.

The first is whether or not the filesystem should be dumped if you use dump for backups, the 2nd is which pass to do fsck's when you boot up. The / filesystem should be 1, everything else can be 2. See man fstab for more details.
