vb.net 2010 .xml file location

I'm makeing a windows project, I am putting an xml file in the data folder.  How do I access it while in development, in the past I've always just put it on the desktop and used this filepath...
 ShowListDataset.ReadXml((My.Computer.FileSystem.SpecialDirectories.Desktop) & "\Airbills\Shows.xml")

I also want to deploy this via clickonce, would I use something like this?

Is the file within same folder? Or subfolder? If same folder then just use the file name. If subfolder then use the Application.Startuppath etc to find the executable path and then construct the path of xml.

I made a folder called Data and put it in there, should it be in the root folder?
CodeCruiserCommented:
If its only one file then it would be easier if its in same folder.
