If there is no requirement to accept, then it is easy - but the license
will still be installed in the default location - should be IMHO.
                                Install Software

Type or select values in entry fields.
Press Enter AFTER making all desired changes.

With the above settings, you could get a FAILURE with acceptance required
like this:
  The software you have selected for installation contains license
  agreement(s) that must be accepted before proceeding.  Failure to accept
  the license terms will prevent the installation of the software.
  Accept the license agreement(s) by selecting "yes" in the
  "Accept new license agreements" field or by specifying
  the -Y option to the installp command.
