putting photoshop on secondary hard drive

Can anyone say how to install photoshop on my secondary hard drive. I have an ssd for windows but keep most of my large programs on a sata drive which is much larger. When I start the installation the wizard tells me it will be put into drive c:\program files x86. Can I change this to g:\program files x86? How?

There should be a way to do it, does the installer not give you the option to choose the destination path?
