Open Exchange System Manager.  Drill down to the mailbox store.  Right click, properties.  On the database tab you can change the path.  Exchange will move the database for you so you don't have to worry about manually copying the files.

I would kick everyone off or do it out of hours. I usually do it out of hours anyway as the server will be working while the databases are moved.
