installing the latest jdk7 for mac

I downloaded the latest installer from and then ran it. When I got to the 
step which was supposed to let me choose where to install the  jdk, I 
did not see any control for configuring this location or any indication 
of where the files would be dropped. I continued with the installation, 
nonetheless. Afterward, I was not able to find the installation with 
this command:

   find / -name "*jdk1.7.0_04*"

Any ideas about what I am doing wrong, how I can coax the installer into 
letting me choose a destination directory, and/or where the files were 
written? I am running Mac OSX 10.7.3 on a macbook pro.
