Is it possible to install programs on another partition by default?

I'm planing to reinstall Windows and wanted to know this. If you have anything that can help I will appreciate.

Hello Shellman,

Doing the tutorial below to change the default location of the Program Files folders right after a clean install would be the perfect timing for this.
