I have made an installer for Apache/PHP/MySQL and so on but the user is restricted to installing to a particular drive+path depending on the values I insert in the my.ini file which can reside inside the mySQL folder itself. However I was wondering if there was a way to change these values dynamically during installtime based on where the user is planning on installing the package, for example if they wanted to install to an F:/ drive (perhaps an extra Hard Disk on their system), could I have the my.ini file values point to this when written to disk ie datadir=F:/www/mysql/data and so on...?
Change my.ini values during installtime?

I don't see why not... but you'd need something capable of search/replace, something like awk/perl, where you could simply substutite predefined markers for paths.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
