I've installed Google Chrome from the PhatdogPM etc etc

I've now posted this in the PhatDog64 630 thread - it's proper place.

You need to specify a user directory like it says.

Either in the exec line of the .desktop file or in a script, put.

Code:
google-chrome  --user-data-dir="/mnt/home/chrome/user"


or something similar depending where you'd like the user data stored.

If you look in this thread, I posted a bunch of sample .desktop files.
