helm is always starting in the current directory unless your cursor is
on a different filename.

e.g if you cursor is on "/etc" (try) helm will start in "/etc" instead of
starting in current directory.

I guess you have enabled helm-mode and `C-x C-f' is bound to `find-file',
if you want something more sophisticated bind `C-x C-f' to
`helm-find-files' and once started use `C-h m' to learn how to navigate.

As mentionned by Dmitry, please use the helm mailing list for such
questions (I rarely read this list).

Thanks.
