Since emacs is pretty much a programmer's program (although it can be anything it wants to...) I guess I ask this here...

I use Emacs with SLIME in both Linux and in Windows when I want to do LISP programming. But in Windows, emacs makes a bunch of configuration files in the c:\ root directory, like c:\.emacs.d, a c:\.slime directory, etc. I don't want that shit in my c:\ root directory, but I see no options in emacs configuration menus to set the "base" directory or whatever it would be called. What the hell?

Anyone use Windows port of emacs and know how to configure it manually to use a specific directory?

use nvi or elvis instead.

But I need SLIME.

That problem should be solved by setting the HOME environment variable to something convenient like c:\home.
As I haven't touched Windows in quite some time I refer you to Google for further advice:

Stop using LISP, problem solved!

Yeah, but then he has to deal with programming languages that are less succinct, and therefore less powerful.
