Link Shell is the best solution.

http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/hardlinkshellext.html

1) Install as normal. (Heh, if you're using a service like Steam, it's not like you can actually tell it where to install games. rolleyes.gif )
2) Locate the game's folder and move it to where you want it. If C:\ is SSD and you want it on D:\ (HDD), then move it to D:\Games\blah
3) Right-click on the folder and "Pick Link Source" - then right-click in the original location and "Drop As -> SymLink". The folder should appear there.
4) Your OS will think it's in both locations, but still knows where to actually fetch the data from. thumb.gif
