Is it possible to change "Building Blocks" Default location ?

Is it possible to change the default locaiton of the "Building Blocks" ? I want the users to save their "building blocks" to their own dedicated user space when they login as they are not allowed to save anything on the C: drive due to security software on the computers.
The default location for the building blocks now is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 12\Document parts\1033\building blocks.dotx

Is it possible to somehow change the location of the Building blocks to "H:\building blocks.dotx"
so that they save their building blocks on H: drive.

I only see the option to create a central building blocks path on the network...
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\General]
"SharedDocumentParts"="N:\\V_O2007\\WWD2007\\Templates\\DocParts"
Just put your docx-files containing the building blocks in the specified path.

WORKS LIKE A CHARM. THANKS A LOT.
I created the folder on Network Drive H:\myfiles\mybuildingblocks.dotx
Edited the registry to save it H:\\Myfiles
Copied the same buildingblocks file from the C: location to the new location
Now I have option to save any new buildingblocks in mybuildingblocks.dotx file
