On windows unsure...

On unix based systems you can set an environment variable POVINI to 
point to an ini file setting up pointers to whatever directories you 
want. Unsure if the mechanism exists for windows POV-Ray installs?

On unix based systems it's also possible to symbolically link across 
file systems. Possible to point from a "C drive" directory to the real 
directory and files on the "F drive" by setting up a link.

I'd suppose similar mechanisms exist to do such things on windows 
systems - but I again don't know. Sorry.
