Of course you can modify these numbers and allocate according to your wish.

Host with transport directory
This is the common transport directory for all the R/3 Systems which will centrally manage your transports. You can simplify the maintenance of the transport directory by maintaining the directory at a single point. The advantage of a central transport host is that you have to maintain only one central entry when moving the transport directory to another host. To do this, specify the name of the central transport host, where your central transport directory is located, in the Domain Name Server (DNS) for all Windows systems.
In the next screen choose the drive for installing SAP R/3 4.7.2 central instance.
