Move 'MyDocs' on local drive Win XP

I am installling Win XP on a new drive and would like to move MyDocuments folder to another partition (such as E:).  Without active directory it does not appear that group policy is available, so how is this accomplished without redirection?   Is there a simple way ?
Thanks for your advice.

    if it's just for one PC you can right click on "my documents", select properties and change the location in there.

    Hope that helps.

    sure it is, it is actualy RUN gpedit.msc

    If you want to move just your documents, right click on My Documents link in Desktop, then click Move.
