Thanks for these links... however the recommended procedure is much too complex. Seriously... this is mad. I just want to move my homes. –  wishi May 26 '11 at 13:46

Unless your AppData folder is absolutely ginormous, you could probably get away with just relocating your Documents, Downloads, Pictures, Videos, etc. folders. There's a "Location" tab in the properties for each folder. When you change it and click Apply (or Ok), Windows will ask if you want to create the folder if it doesn't exist, and then ask you if you want it to move all your data to the new folder.
