When I add the windows component IIS, it installs to c:\inetpub by default and gives me no option to choose a different location.  I do not want IIS on my system drive.  I rather want to have it on my d:\ drive.

How can I do this?  Can I just copy it from c:\ and paste it onto d:\ then change the HOME DIRECTORY in IIS to match the new location?
