Websphere Migration Install Directory from 6.0 to 6.1

I have to upgrade a Windows based stand alone Websphere application server from 6.0 to 6.1. I have read through the process of Installing 6.1 then migrating the 6.0 config to 6.1 using the migration wizard. The current non-root install directory for 6.0 is D:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer.
When I install 6.1 I am assuming I need to install it to another directory. At what level in the directory structure would it make sense to change it?
Should it be something like D:\IBM\Websphere61\Appserver ?

The convention that I use is to have the AppServer directory indicate the version, so I have

\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer61

and

\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer70

The product really doesn't care, as long as the "base" installation directory path isn't "too" deep.  On some platforms (e.g., Windows), there are fully qualified filename length restrictions.

Thank You.
One more question. If both installs use the directory  \IBM\Webspere  can I still uninstall 6.0 after the migration without affecting 6.1?

If you know that you are going to do that, then you can even have both AppServers configured to use the same port numbers.

Thank you for the points.  I'm confused however as to why you chose to close this question in this fashion.

Good luck & have a great day
