Modify the init.m package located in 3.0\Configuration\Kernel, and call
= a file of your own.
This is my modification:
(where jmt_init.m is in fact automaticaly generated by a notebook) In
this package, you should customize all your paths. -----Message

Objet:	[mg9242] Finding "start directory" with Mathematica 3.0 ?

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.
