Hard Drive to SSD Fresh Install on MacBook

I am planning to replace the Hard Drive on my 2008 MacBook (white 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2) with a 128Gb SSD from Crucial. I want to do a fresh install of OS X on the SSD. Is it the same process as in this guide? Basically, instead of working with a new Hard Drive I'd work with a new SSD.

First, you will need to replace the HDD with your new SDD. This guide might help you.

Second, a fresh install is quite simple, and depending on the OS X version your are planning to use, the guide might be the same or similar, but overall, its fairly straight forward.

If you bump into something, let me know.
