I am trying to compile my kernel and get the error message there is not enough disk space.
The partition where the Linux kernel resides has only half a Gig free. However The home partition has 8Gig free.
Is it possible to repartition the hard disk to give the kernel partition another Gig from the home partition without destroying anything

You need to boot using a gparted live CD and basically shrink home, move it to the right, then expand your / partition. Be sure to back up any an all important data files just in case.
