Default How do I optimize the SDD and HDD I have?

Currently I'm running a 64GB SSD and a 1TB Hardrive. I'm trying to figure out the best way to configure these two drives. Up to now I've been using my SSD for the OS and installing most of my programs on the HDD.

I've read about partitioning a portion of the HDD to save a boot image or something like that so that you could boot to the HDD if problems came up or simply replace the OS on the SDD quickly. Is this the best way to set it up?
