Thank you all very much for your help,

For the ListPlot problem: using MultipleListPlot seems the most simple
solution to me.

My notebook directory problem is solved in a most elegant way using:

NotebookDirectory[ InputNotebook[] ] does not seem to work on my system
(Mathematica 3.0.1, Windows NT4), also not for a notebook on my local

thanks again for your help

Just overlay the two plots.

plt1 = ListPlot[{0,2,4,9,16,25},
          DisplayFunction -> Identity];

plt2 = ListPlot[{0,2,4,9,16,25},
          PlotJoined -> True,
          DisplayFunction -> Identity];

Show[{plt1, plt2}, DisplayFunction-> $DisplayFunction];

For Path names use the command

          Input, Get File Path ...

and select file from browser.
