Halp me trim down my Mac system drive to fit a ssd

SSD's for Mac Pro (NOT a laptop): I'm thinking about adding a smallish one of these to a 3-year-old Quad-Core Xeon desktop and can't find any descriptions about how exactly to split out storage (Documents, Pictures, Mail, Downloads, etc.) from apps and System files. I.e., how to install Snow Leo and apps on the ssd so they use another standard internal drive for all their storage, etc.? Anybody done that? Thank you!

Installing an SSD on a HP netbook

I have a HP Mini 110 with a 160 GB HD running Ubuntu. I'm pretty happy with it, but I don't really need all that space (currently I'm filling a tiny portion of it) and would prefer a faster boot time. What kind of improvements in speed should I expect if I swap out the hard drive with an SSD? What is the level of expense and difficulty involved in the install? Would I be better off just getting a newer notebook with an SSD already installed? What is the best source for a suitable SSD?
