Install Win7 on a small capacity SSD

ran across this article:
Kingston offers up cheap 30GB SSDNow V SSD :: TweakTown

my question: are there any tutorials posted about how to properly set up an ssd as a boot drive with a larger capacity drive as storage? i'd like to know how to move the user folders to the secondary drive as well as any other settings for the ssd for windows 7 performance. obviously, with a drive that small, you'd want absolutely nothing else on that drive unless it absolutely, positively needs to be on that drive.

You should put Programs on it too, then install your User files to the larger data drive.

Here's the best tutorial on the subject:
