The safest place is probably the kernel's init.m file. It's not clear from your posting what version of Mathematica you are using. Under version 2.2, adding packages to your system required some hand editing of init.m, but version 3.0 introduced several possibilities for installing shared and private copies of packages so that you didn't have to alter $Path. If you could provide more specific version information, we might be able to suggest some courses of action for you. -- P.J.
