Check the search path : evaluate


Depending on your operating system, it should point to
1 your user directories
2 the current directory
3 the mathematica directories

on my linux system, it gives :
{"/jmt/.Mathematica/4.0/Kernel", "/jmt/.Mathematica/4.0/AddOns/Autoload", \
"/jmt/.Mathematica/4.0/AddOns/Applications", ".", "/jmt", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/AddOns/StandardPackages", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/AddOns/StandardPackages/StartUp", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/AddOns/Autoload", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/AddOns/Applications", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/AddOns/ExtraPackages", \
"/usr/local/mathematica4/SystemFiles/Graphics/Packages", \

and a similar thing on winnt4

With win9x the user directory is replaced by \Common Files\ Mathematica etc.

If this path is incorrect, either your installation was badly done, or you
misconfigured something else.

In any case, you can always load the package if you find its path, for instance:

Hope this helps,
