HTML to MOBI. How to create book "start" location?

Hello. I have an issue I hope you can help me with.

I've created a perfect HTML version of my ebook using Guido Henkel's instructions for formatting (and it does work perfectly in MOBI format), but I need to include the information to tell the Kindle where to look for the beginning of the book. Right now, it automatically goes to my table of contents instead of Chapter 1.

Now, I've read plenty about inserting the information into the <guide> section of the OPF file. But the problem is, I don't convert from ePUB to MOBI. I just put the HTML file into Calibre and convert that to MOBI, and it's perfect.

Is there a way I can tell it to choose a start location without going via ePUBs?

Maybe I'm just misunderstanding how to do this?

Many thanks.
