unattended SQL Server 2005 install

I am trying to figure out how to configure the default file locations (DATA and LOGS) for a SQL2005 instance.  
I need to do it using an unattended install.  
Can’t find a setting in the iss file or the template.ini file.

In the template.ini file, the option INSTALLSQLDIR=<path including trailing slash> indicates where the app directory will be, and INSTALLSQLDATADIR=<path as before> indicates where the data files will go.

Thanks i saw that option for INSTALLSQLDATADIR.

But what if you want to place the data files and logfiles on seperate drive location.
