J2SDK over a network

This is my first post here. So please be helpful.
I have taught Java for the past to years. We use the J2SDK1.4 on our machines. We also run Windows 2000. My problem: My students are having problems running javac and java at the command line.
I have tried the various classpath options recommend in books and at java.sun.com. We cannot change the autoexec.bat files on our network machines. The students have no problems compiling and running their programs on stand alone machines.
The lab manager is clueless on how to help. I have exhaused my own trobleshooting abilities. What are some recommendations?
Thanks

Create a bat file to set the path and classpath each time that they open a DOS window. I have one that I named p.bat, so I open the window, type p and I am all set to compile to whatever SDK that the bat file was set up for.
I run on a Win2000 on a network, but the SDK is loaded on the C drive.
Also Mister C,
Please change your name to be compliant with JavaRanch's naming policy.
Your displayed name should be 2 separate names with more than 1 letter each. We really would prefer that you use your REAL name.
You can change your name: here.
Thanks,
Cindy
