RPM's dont generally give you a choice of installation locations, as this information is pre-built into the RPM as far as i am aware. If you want customised installations of software, then generally it is the case of compiling from source, modifiying makefiles etc along the way.
Im not sure if you did manage to get software installed someware else? then it said file not found? if you did manage to install the software to another partition, then try running the software, but instead of using the program name alone, provide the full path to the executable as well. Eg, if you want to run "progxyz" normally you can just type "progxyz" anyware at the prompt and it will run, this time, type "/path/to/prog/progxyz", where "path/to/prog/" is the directory you installed it in.
