hi Neel, here's one eazy way:-

First, go to Start button -> My Computer. Then Right click on My Computer & click Properties. The "System Properties" dialog comes. Go to Advanced -> Environment Variables. Here you will find 2 types of variables User defined & System variables. Look for a variable named "path".Then add the following entry there - C:\j2sdk1.5\bin(assuming you've installed jdk1.5 on your c drive) with the rest of the path entries. Finally click on apply & ok. Now everything should be ok. Sometimes you need to have a Restart your machine to get the job done.

Happy Programming!!

The PATH variable step in Sun's installation instructions for Windows is also a good reference.
