We were discussing the need for a configurable home button in Rox, and I found a couple of posts on the ROX mailing list about how to make the home button point somewhere else, but they are hacks to the ROX source, so you have to recompile it.
We figured the easiest way was to make it point to ~/home, which would be by default a link to ~, and could be replaced with a link to wherever the user liked. But there didn't seem to be much point in doing it unless it makes it into the standard Puppy, so maybe we need to bring the idea to the attention of Barry.
I think that for some versions like Vistapup, PuppyXP and PuppyPro this could a great addition would be to have a icon that linked to some place that has (/) (/root) and some auto mounts or a link to (/mnt).
I also would like to point out that as I have played around with this that adding icons that link to such places seem to vanish after saving and rebooting.
I don't know if that will happen with links in a folder.
