Back up your database to a file on your D drive.
Create the folder d:\mssql\data and d:\mssql\logs.
Right click on the databases node under your server node in enterprise manager and choose all tasks - restore database - from device - locate your backup file.
Click OK to go all the way back to the initial restore database wizard screen.
At the top 'Restore database as' - enter a new name for your database.
Switch to the options tab, you can see the physical filepaths you are going to create for your data and log file(s) - overtype here with d:\mssql\data\filename.mdf for your data file and d:\mssql\logs\filename.ldf for your log file(s).
