I find that I can only *add* to the file structure using this method.

How do I get a new-user file structure *without* the 'Documents' folder for instance?

Can you guys elaborate on the script you are suggesting? It's way over my head but if you would publish a suitable one here I'm sure a great number of people would be eternally grateful
