Right click on the desktop, select 'Personalize.' On the left in the sidebar there is a link to 'Change Desktop Icons.' This will allow you to show your user folder, but not specifically your 'Documents.' If you want a link right to your Documents folder, I'm pretty sure you'll need a shortcut.

I've tried to do this, but the old registry entries from XP don't seem to work in Vista. For now you'll have to just use a shortcut, I think.

All you have to do is right click on the documents in the start menu and select properties. Then select change location and select desktop and your done.
