    command for adding to PATH env var

    I know there's a command to do it, but i cant remember. I tried to add it to the autoexec.bat but that screwed everything up. Im using Win98. Also, is there a site with a list of all the little known commands like this one

    Right-click My Computer on the desktop. Then go to properties. Click the Advanced tab and press Environment Variables. There you will have the list and you can add some and edit, whatever you want to do.
