I'm going through my class notes, and they say that I need to go into
the autoexec.bat file and add the following line:

SET PATH=$PATH$:C:\jdk1.4\bin

Does anyone have any idea of how I do this? I'm running Windows 2k,
and the only autoexec.bat file that I can find belongsto Easy CD

Left click on Start, scroll up and Left click on run,
--> TYPE: sysedit
in the textBox and add  SET PATH=C:\JDK1.3\BIN;%PATH%; to the
autoexec.bat window... restart computer...

If I'm not wrong, Windows 2K has the facility to set  Environtment
Variables. All U have to do are open your control panel window, click
System icon, go to Advanced tab. Then click Environments Variables button.
Here you can set your PATH variable to add  java binary path.
You don't have to restart your computer after doing this. Just open your
Command Prompt, type echo %PATH%. if java binary path appears then you've
done correctly.
