Move one database to another drive?

In my setup I have about 10 databases -- 9 are small and I would like them to be responsive and one is large and is constantly having rows added to it but those writes are low priority and not time-sensitive. Right now the volume of writes to the large database is consuming so much I/O that its slowing down the computer so I'd like to move this large database to a separate drive where it can use all the I/O it wants while keeping the other small databases on the original drive, and hopefully they should be a lot more responsive as they shouldn't be blocked by the I/O writes of the large DB.

Right now I am using InnoDB and all the databases are together in one large ibdata1 file. What is the best way to split this one large database off and put it, with both its data and logs, on a separate drive? Thanks,
