Correct location for STO

I just got the DVD-ROM and after I started the install, it is now patching - the message said it was going to download 10gb - which is huge and will take a long time (even on high speed DSL)
My concern is in reading what's been posted here. I have VISTA and when the program was installed, it selected the Program Files directory, not the \Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios.
Since the download and install will take all night, I don't want to have to do that all over again.
Should I cancel and start over?
Note - I have the beta STO installed and that is in the \Users\Public\Games\Cryptic Studios\ directory. Nowhere did I read that it had to be uninstalled . In fact, I thought it was good that the DVD-ROM version did select a different location so that the beta version was not over-written.
