Installing SQL Server 2005 on a Drive other than C:\Program Files

I am trying to download and install sql server 2005 on a windows 2000 server and need to change the path to my D drive.   The installation script won't let me.   How can I go about installing on a different drive?   I need more space than C drive has.

Are you using the script to install or the GUI install wizard?

Are you trying to install SQLExpress? There is a check box to hide advanced options. You may find the option you want by clearing the check box.
