How to open Windows Explorer in specified folder

Hi,
Currently Windows XP Explorer opens in Explore Mode and defaults to open the My Documents folder.
Could anyone please tell me if there is a way that I can get Windows Explorer to default to another folder instead of My Documents when I open it. e.g. C:\, as was the case in Windows Me.

Sys. Spec. :
OPERATING SYSTEM Windows XP Home Edition (SP2)
CPU Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz
MEMORY 512MB
HARD DISK 120GB

Thank you in advance...

Regards,

Danny
