Is there a layman's terms on this process, way too much info going on in that thread.

I mean basically right now i just created a programs folder on my 2TB drive and directed all installs to that folder. Is there something else i should be doing?

After you install Windows, just move the folders you want (programs,user folders, etc), using right click->Properties->Locations tab->Move. Select where you want them, then hit OK and Yes. Wouldn't move the actual user folder (just in case), but moving the programs folders and My Pictures and such will be fine.
