I wold like to change the default location of the $UserBaseDirectory.
All I can find in the documentation and in the forum is that I need to
set the environmental variable MATHEMATICA_USERBASE upon startup, but
it doesn't say anywhere how to do that.

What - explicitly -  do I have to do?

Let's say, I want to set $UserBaseDirectory to C:\MyMathDirectory.

If I am successful, do I need to copy the directory structure from the
old directory to the new one in order for Mathematica to run smoothly

Windows XP Professional
Mathematica 6.0.1

Thank you
