   You can use the following to specify that the working directory is 
the same as your saved notebook:

SetDirectory[ToFileName[("FileName"/.NotebookInformation[EvaluationNotebook[]])[[1]]]];

I use this all the time to set the working directory to the same 
directory as the notebook I'm working in.
