Drop in a new drive, and partition/format. (use whatever tools you need 
here) Then mount your new drive with this
mkdir /mnt/newdrive mount /dev/sd(x) /mnt/newdrive

Go to single user mode and copy all your data over (cp -a /home 
Unmount /home, change the fstab file to reflect your new home 
drive/partition and remount.
You should now be able to use the old home drive/partition for 
something else.
Now you should be able to choose to NOT erase the new /home partition 
when you to a clean install of 4.1

Anyone have something else to add?
