Changing default directory for "Documents and Settings" folder



Is there a way to define the default directory for
the "Documents and Settings" folder to a different drive
than the SystemRoot drive for Windows XP Pro?

I would like to do this in order to keep the "Documents
and Settings" folder seperate from the System files, in
case of a catastrophic failure and for ease of backing up
just the "Documents and Settings" folder. I recently
purchased a larger hard drive and seperated into four
partitions; OS, Swap, Programs, & Documents. And would
like the entire "Documents and Settings" folder to reside
on the "Documents" partition. Is this possible?

Thanks, Keith
