Question In which file do I have to set path in Fedora 8?

I need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable but in which file I don't know, the program have specified the path but not the file as following.
You MUST put /home/Shyan/temp/ns-allinone-2.33/otcl-1.13, /home/Shyan/temp/ns-allinone-2.33/lib,
into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
If it complains about X libraries, add path to your X libraries
If you are using csh, you can set it like:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH <paths>
If you are using sh, you can set it like:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<paths>

You can set the path in your ~/.bash_profile. Add the lines below
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/Shyan/temp/ns-allinone-2.33/otcl-1.13;/home/Shyan/temp/ns-allinone-2.33/lib

Be aware that support for F8 drops on January 7. No further official updates of any kind will be produced after that.
