I have bee trying to install magento in our httpdocs document root which works fine other than you get stuck with http://www.domain_name.com/ on the front of every file and folder installed. I have tried to change it to / which crashes installation. I can install to /magento but this still is not correct as I want it in the top level directory and it then has /magento stuck on the front of every file and folder installed.  I would think most developers would want to be able to do this as the site will run faster and makes it easier to move test site to production site in one quick move with SSH.  Is there any fix for this problem.
