Nope, they only install to where steam is installed.

Unless (just guessing) you do the infamous 'trick' of moving the whole folder to his RAID 0 and establishing a shortcut in the Steam base folder, unless Steam explicitly checks for solid files (which could be the case, but I guess not) I think he should be fine.

Yep, tested and working, moved my whole Steam folder to another partition, and substituted it with a shortcut (was going to say a symlink but we're not in Linux haha, anyway...).

The only thing he would have to re-create is the Start menu shortcut, that one gets screwed, so he can have the whole Steam folder out of his SSD and keep it 100% clear (OS stuff aside)
