If you are using KDE then create a script called "shell.sh" - or whatever you want really ending in .sh. Then put the following lines in:
Code:
#!/bin/bash          
konsole --workdir /home/
Replace /home/ with the directory you want to go to.

Change the permissions of the file (right click and go to properties) to make it executable.

Then whenever you click on that you will open the konsole to that directory.

Well as long as you have KDE on the machine it will work fine as it is.
If not try:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
gnome-terminal --working-directory=DIRNAME
Good Luck
