How to mount multiple directories on the same partition?

I am installing an SSD and would like to put / on the SSD and /home, /var, and /tmp on the HDD. My current distro is Kubuntu but I would not mind trying another distro if this procedure can be accomplished easier there. I have installed many different Linux OSes on multiple partitions, however I know of no installer that lets one mount multiple directories on a single partition. I would rather not use three separate partitions as particularly /home, /var, and /tmp are prone to large changes in size and it is not practical to allot each of them some arbitrary maximum.

Note that I am discussing a new install, not moving the current system to the SSD / HD split.
