I'm brand spanking new to taming the beast that is emacs. I'm using the built in "customize" feature (it has checkboxes and the like). However, when I save the changes, it does not prompt me where to save the .emacs init file. It saves it in a location I don't want, from which I had moved the emacs program upon installation.
PS any general tips are welcome. I am quite overwhelmed and hardly even know where to start!
