How install Calibre & Calibre Library where I choose?

OK, finally decided to install Calibre to handle the hundreds of books I have to organize.

Problem-I would like to have Calibre or at least the Calibre Library located on one of my USB external hard drives.

I can locate the Calibre program during install by going 'advanced', but it still installs the Calibre Library on my C: drive, exactly what I do not want.

This seems totally silly easy to do, but I can find no reference to being able to control the location of the Calibre Library.

Help!

See the little arrow next to the Library icon in the main GUI? Use that to move or switch which library to use.
