Like Michael said there is more than one way to deal with this.

I personally prefer to use this:

require_once ($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . "/incl/myfile.php");

Unless the file needs to be kept outside of where the webserver serves

Kim, this is exactly what I was looking for. I had been over $_SERVER in the docs.. but somehow missed that basic obvious param. Thanks!
Sudeer, Shawn, Michael,
your efforts were not wasted either. I absorbed from you all and came up with:

set_include_path(MY_DOC_ROOT . PATH_SEPARATOR . get_include_path());
include 'MY_php_functions.inc';

which I call with:
include $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/MY_inc_php/incsInAllPages.inc';

really basic stuff.. humbling for me, coming from other languages/ environements where I was more expert. ..lucky me this is such a generous and compassionate group of people here.
Thanks again
