What do you mean by "load the package and it fails"? Fails to 
work as intended after being loaded? If so, there must be a 
problem with the package code.

Fails to load? If so, how are you attempting to load the 
package? Is the package in a directory along a path stored in 
$Path? If the problem is the path to your package is not in 
$Path, you could add the path to your package by doing

$Path=Append[$Path,"path to package"];

That is you can put packages where ever you like and they should work.

I find it best to keep packages together in one place. My 
preferred location is the directory returned by

$UserBaseDirectory
