You'll have to set an environment variable that points to that folder, e.g.

TEMP=c:\temp

To do this, right-click on 'My Computer', select 'Properties' and choose the 'Environment' tab. There you'll ba able to enter the appropriate variable name 'TEMP' and the value (some NT installations need to be rebooted when doing this - necessary for e.g. SP4, this works on SP3 without it)

FYI:  You can, and often do have two temp variables.

set temp c:\temp
set tmp c:\temp

If they are both pointing to the same directory, and that directory does exist, all should be fine.
