Your initial path is set in /etc/profile but you can over write it anywhere.

How did you set your extra path directories? In ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile?

If you want to completely rewrite it just enter
export PATH=/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/sbin:/root/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin

or whatever you want it to be in your ~/.profile or ~/.bash_profile
