How do I change the default location of where the user directory is created in SBS 2003 wizard?

When you buy a Dell server with SBS 2003 they setup just a 15 gig partition for the C:, the problem with this is that SBS sets up exchange data, sql data, and user directories on that partition. I know how to move the other databases but I end up having to create the user using the wizard then creating a directory on the second logical drive and then go through the hassle of giving the rights.

I need to know if there is a setting change so that when I use the wizard it puts the new user directory with the correct permissions on the second logical drive.

Thank you
