    There is not an option to do this in an unattended installation. I do all of the RIS/unattended installation images for my company so I am not just telling you something that is unfounded. Your Program Files path is saved as a system variable "ProgramFiles" but that is about it. You may be able to change that path in environment variables but I am not quite sure. I know that it can not be done through unattended installation.
