I'm on a partitioned server and would like to install SilverStripe on the E: drive. Is there a way to do this with the WebPI (I couldn't find an option to specify install location)? Thanks!

WebPI uses IIS as the webserver, AFAIK the webroot can be changed from the default C:\inetpub\wwwroot\, but it would have to be a manual change using IIS Manager.

Thanks Sean. Actually, what my IT guys were hoping is that not only the site files, but also all of the related components (PHP, MySQL, etc.) would end up on the E: drive. Thanks again.
