redefining $HOME

Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible to use the windows folder "My 
Documents" or even "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME" (or some dir 
inside those) as the hoe directory in Cygwin. I though about 
substituting the user directory inside /home by a symlink to one of the 
above. Is there any reason that wouldn't work? Is there a better way to 
do it?

The reason I am thinking about it is just practical: I want to have all 
my files (Windows or Cygwin) under one root.

Thanks a lot
