I've got a regular emacs Installation on my USB-DRIVE (e.g. 
F:/PortableApps/emacs-22.1) and the following lines
in my site-lisp/site-start.el :

(defvar usb-drive-letter (substring data-directory 0 -28)) ;; get root 
directory of emacs installation
(defvar usb-home-dir (concat usb-drive-letter "Documents/"))
(setenv "HOME" usb-home-dir)

Works O.K. for me.
