How would I set up Boinc if I wanted to continue to run S@H with my GPU only, but setup the CPU to run a different project?

In the Setiathome Project Preferences set 'Use CPU' to No.

In your second project set 'Use Nvidia/ATI GPU' to No (If they have GPU apps)

What should the resource share be set at for each project? 100%? Since there using different types of resources.

Yes, leave the resource share at 100, Note there is no % there, you could set your resource shares to 1000 or 10,000 at each project, the theoretical work split would still be the same,

For BOINC 7, the resource share is interpreted as indicating what relative amount of credit you want to get from each project, see http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/ClientSchedOctTen for the design document. In practice it involves a client-side estimation of credit which could be very different from what the projects actually grant.

Claggy has experience with recent BOINC versions and I don't, so start with the equal shares he suggests. If it tends to starve your GPUs you may need to boost their resource share, but note that the hysteresis also described in that document means you'd need to observe over many work fetch cycles to make any judgement.
