put /boot on a seperate partition, which is situated on the ssd.

if you don't give more details, we cannot give more details either. i guess you want to install more than just the linux kernel? like a distribution? which one?

32GiB is sufficient for a normal Linux installation (root, swap and home partitions), so I would just install Linux Mint to the SSD (say 20GiB for /, 4GiB for swap, 8GiB for /home.

Then, once installed, format the HDD as ext4 and set up folders there to store your videos, music, photos etc.

I'd be tempted to install Ubuntu LTS instead of Mint. It may (or may not) more well support the hardware.
