Assuming that the first problem (headless) is solved, I don't see what the 
problem is with the rest. The installer should be able to install anywhere, 
since it performs the necessary hex-editing to modify the installation paths 
in the files it needs to.

As for the components, just install all of them. If you don't want something, 
erase after installation.
