That's so fabulous! I just did it with my "iChats" folder, too (gotta save 'em for work reasons). Finally! I've been wondering about that forever....

Be careful if you've moved the iChats folder and made an alias to it! Because Apple *still* has not implemented proper support for Mac OS aliases in Cocoa, iChat cannot follow an alias. If you've replaced the transcripts folder with an alias, iChat won't complain, but it also won't save any transcripts. I spent some time on this because I want to be able to put the iChat transcript folder where I want, not where Apple wants. My final solution:

-Leave the iChat transcript folder ("iChats") in your Documents folder.

-Make an alias from the transcripts folder to wherever you want the iChat transcripts folder to 'really' be (i.e. where you will access it from). Name it whatever you want.

-Now make the original transcript folder (in the Documents folder) invisible. The alias you created will still be visible and it will still open the transcripts folder.
