I hope this is a simple question.

When I start Mathematica (v4.0, Linux[Mandrake 6]) and I go to open a saved Notebook,
it always defaults to my home directory.

I have tried changing Global $NotebookDirectory and $NotebookPath in the Option
Inspector, but whenever I reboot, I still get my home directory.  (I want ~/math/,
a subdirectory.)

Am I missing something really simple, he asked hopefully.


(cc: replies to e-mail would be appreciated, due to a really slow news server.)

Life is complex:
It has real and imaginary components.
