you can change the default installation drive and/ or directory by using a Registry hack.

Go to:

1.Start > Run

Type regedit
Go to this directory…

3. Look for the value named ProgramFilesDir. by default,this value will be C:\Program Files. Edit the value to any valid drive or folder and XP will use that new location as the default installation directory for new programs.
