loading a mathematica file along with opening a Notebook

Linux / X environment

How can you automatically load a Mathematica file from the same
directory as a notebook when the notebook is opened and evaluated? The
directory that the notebook is in is not necessarily your current
working directory or in $Path.

I want some Initialization Cells to do this loading, without the person
opening the notebook having to do anything special.  But I can't seem
to find a way to ask Mathematica what directory a notebook was found
in?  It seems like this should be easy?

Thanks for any pointers,
