    Ubuntu by default uses it own directory for application installation also. Although some third party applications may ask you to set installation directory.

    The simplest way is to mount one of those drives as /home. There are a bunch of tutorials for creating the partition, copying the stuff across, and then automatically mounting it at boot. All your personal files and settings, including your Steam games, are stored in your Home folder. It has the additional benefit that if you have to reinstall the OS, for some reason, you can keep all your files and settings.
