loading fixtures from different dir

I have a set of fixtures in my db/bootstrap dir. anybody have any idea
on how I can use rake db:fixtures:load with fixtures in a different

I ended up modifying the rails db:fixtures:load task:

namespace :db do
    namespace :bootstrap do
        namespace :fixtures do
          desc "Load fixtures into the current environment's
database. Load specific fixtures using FIXTURES=x,y"
          task :load => :environment do
            require 'active_record/fixtures'
            (ENV['FIXTURES'] ? ENV['FIXTURES'].split(/,/) :
Dir.glob(File.join(RAILS_ROOT, 'db', 'bootstrap', '*.
{yml,csv}'))).each do |fixture_file|
File.basename(fixture_file, '.*'))

Looking at the code it makes me wonder if the rails version of
Fixtures.create_fixtures is windows compatible because of the unix
path it uses for 'test/fixtures'
