create a mount point:

then add the following line to /etc/fstab:

Hmm.  Is there any way to have this pre-configured?  i.e. tell
uses to create
in windows (or create it for them), and have lilybuntu
preconfigured to mount this location?

Preconfigured in ubuntu yes. It just needs to be done once.
Don't know for the Windows part.

Only snag is, it assumes the user will be happy with stuff like that on c:

That does NOT include me :-)

On my system, c: is reserved for Windows and system stuff only. "Documents and Settings" has been moved to e:, and on any system I set up for friends etc, I do the same.

You might be best putting a readme on the desktop telling people how to do this (and any other stuff which is dependent on the host system configuration).
