Using a SSD and spinner

Am looking for the tutorial for installing the OS on a SSD and use a spinner for data - have seen it in the past but the title escapes me.

Yep mate I went through that one but the one I was after is specifically to install the OS on and then transfer data to the spinner so that one can have the smaller SSD to boot with and just load the bulk of data to the larger drive as you want to.

I think it is this one you are looking for John, thread by Kari. Keeping the data and OS separate.
