Installation of Java


I recently installed Java SDK. I followed the instructions on the Sun website and get a directory /usr/bin/j2sdk1.4.2_02. In that directory I can see javac, java, javadoc etc...

Now, when I type at my prompt: javac it says: javac: command not found

I obviously forgot some steps. How can I force java to launch from my prompt?

Thanks in advance
