Putting “Documents” on a network drive on Windows 7 Home

I recently purchased a machine with Windows 7 “Premium” on it. I was having difficulty getting the Windows 7 Documents folder (like “My Documents” on Windows XP) to point at a network drive. (It kept whining that it was not an indexed drive and weird stuff like that.)
