If you set your user account's home directory, Mathematica
will use it. Otherwise, it will default to the root
directory of your system drive, which was a bug...it should
have defaulted to your "Program Files\Common Files" directory,
which now happens in version 4. Note this info only applies
for Windows NT; Win95/8 always use the "Program Files\Common Files"
Under all Windows OS's, you can override Mathematica's
default preferences directory by using the environment
Mathematica will create a 'Mathematica\3.0' subdirectory in
the directory this environment variable designates.
