I am running Mma 3.0 on a Windows 95 Pentium.

I have been unable to AutoLoad packages as described in appendix A.8 of
the mathematica book.  I copy a package Until.m from the
AddOns/ExtraPackages Folder and put it into the AutoLoad Folder.  I then
start mathematica and type in ??Until.  I get the message "Symbol Until
not found".  I also have made a folder named Until and put Until.m in
it.  I get the same error message.

1-I have checked the Global options and the AutoLoad path.  Though not
in normal filename format, does have AddOns and AutoLoad in it.
2-On page 1016 of the mathematica book, the instructions say "By placing
the directory for an add-on in AddOns/AutoLoad, you can .....".  Those
words do not apply to Windows 95.  I can put files in folders or folders
in folders.  I do not have directories and cannot put them in folders.

Could you please tell me exactly what to do with Until.m to get it to
AutoLoad?  I obviously do not understand the instructions in the
mathematica book.
