Yes, the installer will ask where to deploy and then you'll need to tell

You can then tell your container/application server to set the idp.home 
property accordingly.

Eg. in Tomcat, you can use a <Context> block:

# cat /etc/tomcat/Catalina/localhost/idp4.xml
<Context docBase="/opt/idp4/war/idp4.war"
           <CookieProcessor alwaysAddExpires="true" />
           <Parameter name="idp.home" value="/opt/idp4" override="true" />
