Dual-booting takes a fair amount of space, and large SSDs are currently very expensive. So, I'd probably stick with the 120GB hard drive for a while. Then upgrade to a SSD if you want alot more speed and drop resistance, or upgrade to a larger hard drive if you want more capacity and a little more speed.

As for the process of dual-booting, look in the OSX section of these forums, there's alot of info there.
