I want to add a custom folder location in "Save As" and "Save" dialog box. Currently it shows "My Computer" , "Desktop" , "My Documents" and "My Recent Documents" option on the LHS of the dialog box. I want to add a custom location "C:\Test" there.

How can I do that?

To change the default XP one you need to use the TweakUI powertoy.

However, some applications implement this dialog in different ways.

Microsoft Office 2003 for example uses its own version of the Save dialog and has an Add to "My Places" option on the tools menu.
