Need Help with Follow Path Constraint

Hi, I am using a Follow Path constraint on a cone to follow a curve. I want the cone to follow the same angle as the curve when the curve handles are bent. (see image) The problem is when I select both the cone and the curve and move them the cone moves erratically and does not follow the curve. I tried to add a children constraint and a trackto constraint but the objects still don't move together. What I eventually want to do is add an "Empty" and then make the cone and curve children of the "Empty". I tried this but the objects still don't move together.

1) why does the cone with the "follow path" constraint not move with the path?
2) how do I get the cone with the follow path constraint to follow when I drag?

If someone could help me I would really appreciate it.

Thanks :)
