Python IDLE Question

Hello,

I have a question about Python IDLE, when I run a Python script under the
Edit Window of IDLE, i.e Run -> Run Module,
I have the following Message:

IDLE 1.0.3

Warning: HOME environment variable points to
C:
but the path does not exist.
================================ RESTART ================================
1. What does this Warning about? Do I need to set my HOME variable to
some where else?
If so, where?

2. "but the path does not exist" What does this refer to? what path?
NOTE: I run Python IDLE under Windows XP, and I check the environment
variable, there is NO HOME variable in the environment!
By the way, the scripts run ok under IDLE, just curiosity about this
message!

What do you get when you do the following in your Python shell?
import os
userDir = os.path.expanduser("~")
print userDir
