Use filemon.exe (Sysyinternals.com) to locate the file
I found the file is under

C:\Documents and Settings\<my user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates

folder(Win2k pro) . I don't know if its truw for all other playforms.

You can use some MSOffice developping http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/off2000/html/woobjTemplates.asp
Call the DefaultFilePath property with the wdUserTemplatePath parameter.
