I am new to Fedora and I have never configured a multi booting machine. But i have a system with 2 solid state drives that I would like to install Fedora on, along with windows 7 (which is allready installed on 1 ssd). I have another ssd and a 1tb hard drive coming in the mail soon. So I would like to know the best configuration for this machine. So I would like to know how I should configure this systems 2 OS and the steps I need to take to do it.

The easiest way would be to first install Windows on whatever drive you want, then boot up from the Fedora installation CD to install the rest of your system. The Fedora installer should recognize your Windows disk, allow you to access the file system in Fedora, and add an option to your boot menu on install. All this used to be harder, but no longer.

Just be sure to follow the latest Installation Guide.
