Just to confirm if you click start and right click on documents select properties you do not get a location tab?
Is this the same if you perform the same procedure on Pictures?

Are you in a domain environment?  Could this have been disabled by a policy?

Hi -
I believe that you are right-clicking on Documents and Settings and not the user folder Documents.  
XP - c:\Documents and Settings\My Documents
Vista - c:\Users\your-user-name\Documents
The folders above are equivalent.  The D & S you find in Vista is called a Junction.  It is used by XP-era applications.  When they look for D&S, they are forwarded to \users\..\documents and never know it.  Junctions only work for apps and 3rd party file managers, not Windows Explorer.
From  MS help  -  What happened to My Documents
Also from MS, info on differences between XP & Vista, including the Documents, Music, Pictures folders
Vista - XP differences
