Change desktop icon target

I have a small office with a simple network sharing setup with 5 pcs. All machines are running XP home. I have 1 main machine that I want to use as a "server" for the other 4 computers.
How do I change the 4 "client" machines' My Documents icon targets to the My Documents of the "server" machine.
I know that doing it this way restricts the availability of "in use " files for others but I'm willing to be patient and wait for another user to finish.
1 Solution
- Right click the "My Documents" folder on the other computers and click, properties and select "MOVE".
- You can now select a folder on the "server"
- Windows will ask if you want the current content of the My Documents folder to the new location, proberly yes in you situation.
