Is there an easy way to make the windows installer default to c:\Program 
Files\Python23 instead of c:\Python23? I know that the path can be 
changed manually at install, but that's a pain when you have 
dozens/hundreds of machines.

Python stands out like a sore thumb when installed into the root 
directory and users who aren't familiar with it think it's Spyware or 
Malware of some sort and tend to try and delete the folder. We runs a 
script that removes it from Add/Remove Programs and the Start Menu's 
'Programs' folder, but we'd like to not have the installer default to 
the root dir... any suggestions???
