Installation filling up System Drive

I have a question regarding Installation of SQL.
Whenever I have my installation files located on D:\(for example), and I instruct SQL during installation to install everything to D:\, there are still a ton of files that get copied to the C:\ partition (%SYSTEMDRIVE%). This is a big problem for me, as most of the customers site I install and configure SQL on, has a very limited amount of space on there System Drive.
Is there a way to make SQL dump these file (Im guessing setup support files and such) to another drive during installation, so the System Drive is not impacted whatsoever?
Also, when ever I install the Service Pack for SQL, even though SQL is installed on D:\, my System Drive (C:\) shrinks dramatically. As with the above question, is there a way to prevent this from happening?
Thanks in advance for any help.
