There are a several ways:

1) use Ant.
	A) download and uncompress the binary package into a folder
	B) run ant -f installer.xml -Dair.sdk.url.server=<some server>
-Dair.sdk.url.folder=<folder path for url> -Dair.sdk.url.file=<file name
of download>

So, for 14 beta on Windows, it would be:
	-Dair.sdk.url.server=http://labsdownload.adobe.com
	-Dair.sdk.url.folder=pub/labs/flashruntimes/air/
	-Dair.sdk.url.file=air14_sdk_sa_win.zip

2) Use local.properties
	A) Run the installer, choose any AIR version, go to next screen
	B) Select a folder but BEFORE you go to next screen
	C) insert a local.properties file into that folder
	D) Continue to next screen and complete install

For 14 beta on Windows, local.properties would contain:
air.sdk.url.server=http://labsdownload.adobe.com
air.sdk.url.folder=pub/labs/flashruntimes/air/
air.sdk.url.file=air14_sdk_sa_win.zip

3) Use custom config file
	A) Download http://flex.apache.org/installer/sdk-installer-config-4.0.xml
	B) Edit it as Om just did
	C) Run the installer with the additional parameter -config=file://<path
to modified xml file>

Isn't it nice that Om made the changes instead? ;-)
