You can move single user profiles to different locations.
I'm not sure if you need to have XP Pro for that but anyway this is the way of doing it.
Open *Administrative Tools*/*Computer Management*
Expand the *Users* tree till you reach the accounts list on the right pane.
Right click a user account to view its properties.
In the *Profile* tab just type the location where you want to store user data [X:\folder\subfolder] in the *Home Directory* textbox.
The new path will be operational at next logon.

The *Documents and Settings* folder needs to be there anyway for the default user profile, you can't move that.

You CAN do it, I just don't know how :p

There would probably be a few variabled to change here and there - probably best looking for a program to do it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
