      Description:
      I boot from Drive D: and want to install java on Drive C since I don't enough disk space available on drive D
      But the installation process seems to stick to the default drive and change of installation drive doesn't take effect at all.

      How to Reproduce
      1. get j2sdk-1_4_2-beta-windows-i586.exe bundle from
         /net/koori.sfbay/p/jdk01/jdk/1.4.2/latest/bundles/windows-i586
      2. double click that bundle to launch installation
      3. On the screen of "Custom Setup", click "change" button which lead me to next screen of "change current destination folder"
      4. select drive C for destination folder and then click "OK" button
      5. Then it bring me back to the screen of "Custom Setup" and it did show
         the change of installation drive
      6. click "next" button, but the installation script still tend to install
         java on the default drive which don't have enough disk space.
         therefore, the installation process end up with a failure.

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      FULL OS VERSION :
      Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Installer won't let me change install drive to anything other than the system drive (where the OS is installed).

      I have my OS on I: and there's not room there for the SDK (and I only want the OS there anyway). So I change the install location to V:\java\ anc clicks "Next". Then the installer, for some reason, informs me that there's not enough room on I: and throws me back to the previous screen. And yes, there's plenty of room on V:.

      Installer wants 260-something mb on I: (where I'm not installing anything) and 8K on V: where I'm installing the SDK.



      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When trying to install the beta release of the SDK I use the 'change' button to change the install to the D: drive, but when I click 'Next' all I get is a dialog saying that I don't have room on my C: drive. The dialog shows that the installation is only intending to write about 8K of data to D: and 194MB to C:.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Try to install the sdk on a machine with more than one hard drive and try to change the installation directory to a non-C: drive.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I was expecting a successful installation to the D: drive!
      ACTUAL -
      I saw a dialog saying that it was going to put it all on the C: drive anyway and I didn't have space
