Installing RPM on different Location

I am running FC6 and using the install software (not command line) to install the mysql. I already have a different version of mysql installed. Now I want to install another version of mysql in different location using INSTALL SOFTWARE. How do I do this?

Most of the files need to be in the same location over all. If you know which files need to be in a different location then you can extract the files from the rpm and place them there. This is the way I would do it.
