Changing default starting directory


From: Charles Muller

When I start up my Emacs (21.2 on Redhat 8) my startup directory in
*scratch* is by default

/home/chuck

I want to change this to 

/mnt/win_d/docs

And so I added the following to my .emacs file:

 '(default-directory "/mnt/win_d/docs")

This does not do the trick. I have Googled around a bit, and looked through
the Emacs manual to try to figure out how to do this, but with no luck
(probably, such a basic question, no one asks it).

Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks,

Chuck
