If you've got other Sword stuff installed there, then you should have
had a SWORD_PATH environment variable set to it by whatever previous
application package you have installed, since that's a nonstandard
location.  Xiphos respects SWORD_PATH if present, but if that is not
set, it believes in the user's %APPDATA%/Sword for personal use (e.g.
C:\Documents and Settings\You\Application Data\Sword) and
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Sword otherwise.  I understand these
conform with both JSword habit as well as upcoming engine habit, based
on recent SVN commits there.  I wouldn't know what to do about finding
modules if there are no traces supplied to identify their location.

Not a stupid question at all.  I hope I'm being clear enough.
