IIRC there is no "new install". Choose Custom Install on the blank SSD (with no HDD connected of course), and you should be good.
If you don't want the 100MB System partition created on your SSD, here is one possible set of instructions:
1. Boot back from HDD, connect SSD as secondary drive.
2. Partition and format the SSD using diskmgmt.msc, using the whole drive.
3. Power off. Unplug HDD, plug in SSD only.
4. Boot Win7 disc/usb, and install on the already created/formatted partition (don't go into Advanced and muck around with partitions anymore)
Is there any reason to partition a SSD? Right now I have "Disk 0 Unallocated Space 111.8GB" can I just install windows to that or do I need a partition first?
IMO 120GB is not big enough to partition. Between the OS, apps, and may be a couple of games, you may be pretty much done with that capacity.

I only redirected the 4 Library folders (Documents, Music, Pictures, and Videos). On my brother's machine where he tends to throw stuff on Desktop, I redirected that too. Some people want to move the entire Profiles folder, but on a 120GB drive, space should not be that tight, and temp files from web browsers and other apps can remain on the SSD taking advantage of the speed.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.
