If you can get to System Manager, here is where to change it:

System Manager
                 |---First Storage Group
Right click on 'Mailbox Store' and switch to the 'Database' tab.  The
'Exchange database' and 'Exchange streaming database' locations are
where your information store is stored.  

If you move one step up and right click on 'First Storage Group' and
choose properties, you can choose where to put the 'Transaction Logs'
and the 'System Path' location (haven't figured out what System Path is
exactly, but the default is also '\mdbdata' so you might want to keep it
with your IS.

Any changes you do here will automatically stop the Exchange services
and move any existing files.
