path problem

I have just installed a mathematica 4.1 on my PC under dos/windows.
When I try to run a program, it turns out that mathematica cannot find
the files in the current directory (the . directory). When I check
the $Path from mathematica, I find that "." is in the list of paths.
Could somebody teach me why mathematica cannot find the file in the
directory (e.g., when I try "<<a.m" mathematica told me "Cannot open
the file") and how to fix it? Do I have to type the long string for 
the path of the file each time? Is there a way to configure mathematica 
so that it can find files in the current directory?
