I got around this by editing l2hconf.pm in the root
directory for the LATEX2HTML package. 

Line 187 of this file specifies the name for the local 
(user- or document-specific) initialization file. 

I find it convenient to specify 

$INIT_FILE_NAME = 'l2h.ini';

so that the initialization files have a file extension 
recognized as such by default under Windows.  

Then you can edit l2h.ini in the document directory to 
control all the other options.

Hope this helps you,
