You can use the "cd" command to specify the startup directory in the ~/.octaverc file. 

last I checked, the Windows MinGW build has the following line at the end of the .octaverc file, which defaults startup to the users home folder. (C:/Users/username for Win Vista/7, I think it's C:/Documents and Settings/username for XP)


I always comment this line out, and set a windows shortcut with no 'start in' location so that it starts wherever the shortcut is located. then i drop an Octave shortcut at the root of any project folder i'm working in. maybe a bit cumbersome, but it works for me.
