    Inside the relevant application (e.g. Word), go to Tools > Options > Save >
    Then change the path where it says "Default File Location"

    That's how you do it, but if your asking for a permanent solution on a network client you might find it doesn't stay the next time you log on and you need to speak with your network administrator!

    you should be able to get the admin templates for office 2003 / 2007 ( possibly ) and use group policy to set the load / save locations for all of your clients.

    http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/...emplates..html

    The part you are interested in is this part :

    More Templates

    We'll see how to add and remove templates (and what this does in the Object Editor GUI) in the next article. But first, if you are a Microsoft shop, a whole bunch more templates are available to let you manage business productivity applications on your network using Group Policy. First, let's look at the templates available for Microsoft Office 2003 (see Table 3). These templates are available from the Office 2003 Resource Kit and give you a lot of control over Office applications deployed in a managed environment (that is, a Group Policy environment).

    Especially the link thats highlighted in the bold section.
