sql server 2008 instance path question

Medium Priority

Hello,

I'm looking for the best practice when installing SQL server 2008 - should the default instance path be different from the system drive?  I have a mirrored system drive along with a mirrored data drive.  Should I put it on the mirrored data drive?

Any other best practices I should follow?  Potential gotchas?

Thanks for your time.
