Microsoft Encarta install problem

I'm trying to install MS Encarta 2002 DVD version.

The setup and install goes fine as long as I install it on my C drive...but I don't want to!! I'd prefer to install it in another drive (with more space) but unusually there are no browse options to select a different install location during setup.

I know it uses the Internet Explorer front end, but so do plenty of other programmes not necessarily installed on the C drive, so I can't see why I shouldn't be able to install it where I want it.

One of the problems encountered after installing on the C drive is because it's so big, even though I still have over a Gig of space available on C drive afterwards, Defragmenter won't run because there is less than 15% of the available space left, and as I said I don't want it on my C drive anyway...

Any ideas?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

You could try a command prompt (start- run- command)
then enter the command, x:\setup y. where x is the letter of
your cd drive and y is the drive you want to install to.
Not sure if it's correct command, but something along those lines.
