Hello everybody,

I just installed Mathematica 3.0 on my NT 4 machine and wonder if there
is a Mathematica command to get the "start directory" of the current
notebook ?  I tried $LaunchDirectory, $InitialDirectory and
$TopDirectory but they all tell me where Mathematica itself lives. I
want the place where the currently running notebook sits. The idea is
that I want to write some datafiles into the same place where the
corresponding notebook is.

Any suggestions are welcomed.
