Bailey,

I'm surprised you are seeing c:/emacs/bin as your home directory -  
perhaps its a peculiarity of the official GNU release.  `C:\Documents  
and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data' is the default on XP I  
believe.  Personally, I like the EmacsW32 release (http:// 
ourcomments.org/Emacs/EmacsW32.html).  It is customized to work well  
with windows and includes a more up-to-date version of org-mode by  
default.

The file is called '.emacs' - no extension.  You can create it if it  
doesn't exist by typing 'C-x C-f ~/.emacs <RET>'.

It might also be worth looking up the Windows section in the emacs  
manual (see 'Read the Emacs Manual' on the help menu).

Regards
David Lord
