Unhappy Two Hard Drives, one for storage, one for Operating systems

I just got a terabyte for my Mac g-5. The other drive is 250 gigs and I would like to have the terabyte for storage of all my docs, pics, and music. The other drive I would like to use just for the operating system. I dragged my user file to the terabyte drive. Is this the right way to do this? and If I save a doc or upload a picture will it be saved to the Terrabyte?

I'm looking for a straightforward way to make this transition.

I assume you have a PowerMac G5, which has the capability to have two HDDs.

Just dragging the "user file" (called HOME folder or directory, located in Macintosh HD / Users / ) to another HDD is not really working.

How to Move the Home Folder in OS X – and Why

Depending on your Mac OS X version, there might be other steps.
