I can't see your problem with the directory names.
I would boot up the ReactOS LiveCD, which would have a fullscreen 
graphic setup instead of the explorer GUI.
So we don't need to implement the graphic subsystem into the setup, we 
just need to create a fullscreen setup app.
Of course I don't want to replace the LiveCD with this, so I don't see 
any problems.
