Don't quote me on it, but I'm guessing you can edit the 
script to include your directories in the /home folder

Here is the top of the file
# A quick-n-dirty little script that will copy an icon to all user's
# GNOME/KDE desktops

# if you have $HOME somewhere besides /home, or more than one home,
# edit this line:
Just edit the HOMEDIRS variable to something like "/home/*/"
Again, i'm just guessing, use with caution.
