    It seems that you know the location of the notebook because you double
click it to open it.
    There should be a utility with 7.5.1 called "Find File" ( look under the
Apple menu at extreme top left of screen). Double click "Find File", after it
opens, type in the notebook's title. When "Find File" lists the notebooks
name, you can highlight the file. The path will be shown. If you want to type
the directory it will be of the form (For instance)

 "Macintosh HD:Mathematic:Stuff:Notebook"

where each colon separate each folder in the path.

I hope this makes sense to you.
