It cannot be reset from inside the kernel. The value of $UserBaseDirectory can be specified by setting the MATHEMATICA_USERBASE operating system environment variable when the Mathematica kernel is launched. It cannot be reset from inside the kernel. $AddOnsDirectory and $UserAddOnsDirectory are undocumented in version 6 and will be set to $BaseDirectory and $UserBaseDirectory, respectivly, at least on my Windows XP with Mathematica 6.0.2. hth, albert
