Does "Favor Source" do anything?

I have a "standard setup" project in developer 7.0.  All my components are marked as "Optional" for the "Remote Installation" property.  My sub-features are mared as "Favor Parent".  The root feature is marked as "Favor Source".  However all the files get installed on my local hard drive.  Further the InstallShield help files state that the user can change this on a feature and install locally via the "custom setup" dialog.  I've never seen such an option on any dialog.  What on earth am I missing?

You will see this options in the cusom setup dialog only for basic msi projects, not for standard projects.
