General procedure for installing to an SSD?

The Guides&Solutions section of the forum has a useful guide to using solid state drives in Fedora (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=277082) once you have a running system installed. I'm trying the visualize the most efficient method for installing Fedora on a system with an SSD from scratch. What is the order of operations?

Perhaps people can offer some criticisms of how I think about this (since I haven't tried it yet).

I assume installing from the live CD is still a good way. I assume its not good to select the default partitioning scheme. I don't know whether using LVM is a good idea. Some of the configurations mentioned in the guide involve setting options in the /etc/ fstab file. I assume you can't do that until you do the installation and have an /etc/fstab file.

One technique mentioned in the guide is to put the /var/log filesystem on a conventional hard drive, if the system has one. Should I do this in the custom partitioning phase of installation from the live CD? (I've never used that interface, so I don't know what can be done with it. I assume it lets me run fdisk.)

I'm curious what other directories could be advantageously mounted on a spinning disk. (I plan to have a laptop drive as my spinning disk.)

The general way I visualize the installation from the live CD is that you would do a custom partitioning. You would then do the "copy Fedora to hard drive" phase in the normal way. Then you would do further customization before installing addtiional packages or updating.
