Move DFS Staging Area

I currently have a couple Windows 2000 servers set up with DFS shares.  I'm attempting to add a new server.  The problem is, the new server keeps assigning the wrong drives for the staging areas.  For example
//Share 1
Root      : p:\
Stage    : o:\frs-staging
///Share 2
Root      : o:\
Stage    : p:\frs-staging

This is a problem because one of the shares is on a partition much larger than the other.  While it would work for share 1 to use the share 2 drive for staging, the share 1 drive is much too small to be able to stage share 2 properly.  I cannot figure out how to change the location of the staging directories.  Thanks.
