Hello & Bonjour!  First, thank you very much for your hard work on this project.  I downloaded it the other day and have been very pleased with its usefulness with some of my older Windows games.  I use a Mac today, but I had a Windows computer up to around 2006, and I have many PC games from the 90's and early 2000's that I would like to play again if PlayOnMac will let me.

My question - Is it possible to install a game to another hard disk?  My main drive in my iMac is almost full but I have several backup drives, and would love to install many of my games to one of them.  But, the install process does not seem to allow for a change in installation location, and it installs everything to the main drive.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Got it going, thank you very much!  The PlayOnMac directory location was slightly different, but I tweaked it and the symlink is working fine and installing and running games on the external drive.  Merci!
