I'm not certain where it is in the set up routine, but I can tell you where to find it once you have installed MSDE.
Go to EM, right-click on the Server, select Properties.
On the 'General' tab, select Network Configuration. Make sure that TCP/IP is in the enabled protocols listbox. Highlight TCP/IP and click on 'Properties'. You will see the port number there. You may change it from here.

"During setup, you can choose any port number," yet I can find no information on how to do this. I assume it is a property=value in setup.ini, but cannot find any details. Details, anyone?
