Changing Windows XP Explorer Defaults

I red a tip once in PC Advisor, it helped me to change the default folder of Windows Explorer from My Documents to a folder of my choice. I reinstalled Windows and now I can?t remember the line which goes to Properties of the Windows Explorer icon.
I did try searching on this site as well without any success! If anybody remembers it, could you remind me please?
Thanks.

C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n, /e, /select, C:

Copy and paste the above line into the 'Target' box, when you right-click your Explorer icon/shortcut and choose Properties.

Thanks jazzypop, but didn?t work. Explorer only highlights the drive, but doesn?t actually open it. On the left side of the window My Computer is highlighted on the right hand side C drive.

I took the "select" out it worked. Thanks again jazzypop.

C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe /n, /e, G:
