Default Changing default path for Visual Studio .Net help

The default help for Visual Studio .Net is almost 1 Go.

Installing VS .Net on many workstations takes a lot of capacity disk.

I'm looking for a way to set up Visual Studio .Net to use another path than the default one for the help.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET\Msdn

That way we can put the help files in different languages on a server and save some space on each workstation.

Any idea on how to do that?

If I am not mistaken, you can install the MSDN with the option to "leave the files where they are", or something similar.

So, you should first copy the contents of the installation disks to a location on the network. Then, install the MSDN on each work station from this network share, leaving the files at the original location.

That should do the trick.....
