How do I move the User Directories to a differnet partition and link the old partition to the new one?   Or do I have to do that?   What I have to do is move the existing User Home directories to a larger partition. This includes FTP, HTTP, and all the network users?

Copy your home directorys to your new partition. delete all home data of you old partition. Create an empty directory /home. Edit the fstab file in the etc directory
/dev/hdc1       /home                     ext2            defaults   1   1

Where /dev/hdc1 is the name of your new partition

copy (cp) usually did not work across partitions, I suggest using tar or cpio

mv doesn't work over partition. Copy should general work. But tar is better you are right.
