how to separate location of sysdb from installation files during installation?

In sql srv 2000, there were options during the installation to specify wehre the installation and DBs should go. I'm not seeing this in sql 2005 enterprise edition during installation. Isn't there a performance gain to separate the installation files from DBs? What's the best practice for sql srv 2005?

In SQL 2005 you can choose the location of the database files when creating the database. You can even have a single database broken into several files and placed in separate locations.

This may be one reason you no longer see that option.

But what about systems databases? Wasn't it a best practice in sql 2000 to have program files and system databases in separate partitions?
