Thanks to everyone who emailed suggestions about loading packages.
Unfortunately, everyone thought the solution was to put the package
in the right folder or use the right pathname. Let me explain a
little more. Among the files in my Packages folder, there is one
named test.m and one named tost.m. They are identical (cut and paste)
except for the first line. test.m begins with

	BeginPackage[ "test`" ]

and tost.m begins with

	BeginPackage[ "tost`" ].

I can load test.m and access the function it contains. I can't load

	Needs[ "tost`" ]

	   Warning:Context tost` was not created when Needs was

I don't know if this is a clue or not, but with the packages I can
load, I get the dialog box asking me if I want to initialize the 
notebook whenever I open the notebook. With the packages I can't load, 
I get no dialog box when I open the notebook. 

I'm baffled.
