Unhappy i set CLASSPATH but still can't comile my java code

I am learning j2se n i have fedora 9 installed. While learning using packages I had to set set CLASSPATH. I wrote:
because I wanted to import a class whose corresponding bytecode was saved in the mentioned /home/.../bytecode folder.
I tried echo $CLASSPATH and it showed the expected output.
but when i tried to compile my new class using
javac -d /home/.../bytecode
it shows the errors:
package ABC does not exist
cannot find symbol

[ABC is the package that holds the previously compiled class that i want to import]

Please help..
thanking you,

Hi -

This link might help:

Basically, do this:
1. If you've got a package "graphics", with a class "Rectangle"...
//in the file 
package graphics;
public class Rectangle {
   . . . 
2. ... then put your source file "" in a subdirectory called "graphics":
3. ... and compile and run your program directory ABOVE "graphics":
javac graphics/
java graphics/Rectangle
'Hope that helps .. PSM

You might find this link helpful, too:
