It's called sasv9.cfg . And, just as in earlier versions, the default is in the !SASROOT directory, the place where you installed SAS.

And, just as in earlier versions, you can have a 'local' version in your project directory, and you can name it whatever you want using the -config option. (Ron Fehd has written a ton on this in SAS-L, so you can find his expertise in the SAS-L archives.)

BUT.. there's a new wrinkle. The default sasv9.cfg file points you at additional config info, in a subdirectory under !SASROOT which is the !SASROOT\nls\<whateveryourlanguagecodeis>\ directory.

And you'll want to find out more, because there's a whole section on how SAS finds the config files, and in what order it processes them. Go to "Getting Started Under Windows" and look up the part called "How SAS Finds and Processes Configuration Files".
