Hey Joe,
	Yeah, we have an attribute stored for a module called: AbsoluteDataPath 
which will return the directory the fullpath to the datafiles.  It's 
built in SWMgr.  There is duplicate code in src/mgr/installmgr.cpp that 
does the same thing (which should be removed and used AbsoluteDataPath, 
but give the algorithm more concisely).

	Hope this helps,

cf. /RawGenBook

cf.  /AbsoluteDataPath
