Booting Windows from an SSD

I've heard people talk about booting Windows from an SSD to improve start-up speeds and then using their HDD for everything else, but I haven't found any articles that talk about this. I would appreciate if anyone would enlighten me upon this matter and give any advice toward actually executing it. Thanks for all the help in advance. :D

    Install an SSD in your computer. Then install Windows onto that SSD (C:).

    Use a standard HDD as your data storage drive (D:?)

    The faster performance of the SSD will allow Windows to boot and perform much quicker and smoother. A good resource:
