For most users it is recommended that they leave all settings in the installer in their default state.  However, some users may wish to change the location for the Core sound library installation.  Changing the Core library location is done by clicking the location option on the installation type page of the installer. If no options are available here, it means that you already have a version of EZdrummer installed.
