New build with SSD and HDD question

In a couple days I'll be building my second pc. This is the first time I've used a SSD. With a SSD being small in storage I've decided to purchase a 750gb HDD for storage. Some of the hardware I'll be adding is:

-Asus Rampage III Forumla Series Motherboard
-Intel Core i7 2600k
-PNY Geforce GTX 580 GPU
-Corsair 1050w Professional Series Power Supply
-WD Caviar Black 750GB HDD
-Samsung 830 Series 128GB SSD

My question is this:

I want to use my SSD for the main OS and for games and whatnot. If I install both HDD and SSD and fire the machine up for the first time, how will I know which storage device is being used for the installation of Windows? A step by step how-to for dummies would be super awsome :)  Thank you for your time.

Can't believe I didn't think of not plugging the hard drive in until after windows install. Thanks a ton.
