Ubuntu – I think about adding a second hard drive to the laptop

hard driveinstallationmountpartitioningssd

I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 laptop and I want to replace the DVD drive with a 16GB SSD drive. Now I have just 2 partitions on my hard drive ( / and /home), after adding the SSD drive I want to use it like the current partition mounted in / and my HDD like the current partition mounted in /home. Is it possible? Has somebody tried this method to use Ubuntu?

I have a second drive in an old tower, with / and the swap file on a forty gig /dev/sda and /home on a 300 gig /dev/sdb. Works fine. (It's a salvaged system pieced together from scraps.) However, a second hard drive on a laptop would be a fearsome drain on your battery.
