    you need to be rooted first off and secondly you need to create a partition on your sd card of ext2... and you need to have the sdk or at least adb... then just run these commands...

    adb devices
    adb remount
    adb shell
    df
    cp -a /data/app /system/sd
    cp -a /data/app-private /system/sd
    rm -r /data/app
    rm -r /data/app-private
    ln -s /system/sd/app /data/app
    ln -s /system/sd/app-private /data/app-private
