Yeah, noticed. But it installs itself in /var/www, which is the 
documentroot for Apache, and in which I had (!) some php-pages that were 
removed when I removed phpmyadmin via apt-get remove phpmyadmin. Luckily 
I had backups. That's stupid. Not everyone has backups. It should 
install to $DocumentRoot/phpmyadmin, IMHO.

So for future reference, is there a way to specify installation 
directory when installing via apt-get or dpkg -i?
